CW 699 - MFA Thesis

3 Credit(s)

In each of the final two semesters in the MFA Program, students enroll in CW 699 for a total of six credits, culminating in a capstone MFA thesis of 48-64 pages of poetry, or 100-200 pages of fiction. The thesis is written under the supervision of a thesis advisor, read by a thesis committee of a least three members, and subject to a public thesis defense. The MFA thesis is the focus of each student’s three years of graduate study. It represents the best work the student has produced - informed by the MFA workshops, by the study of literature, and by subjects relevant to the student’s project - mentored by faculty, directed by an advisor, and nurtured by an engaged community of writers.
