Creative Writing 

The MFA and certificate programs in Creative Writing at the Mount are artist-training programs for students seeking to write professionally across multiple genres, and who wish to integrate different areas of academia in their work. We believe that a foundation in intellectual history and the humanities are essential qualities of any artist.

Our low-residency MFA and certificate programs offer working professionals the flexibility to enroll in online or on-campus courses, or both. Classes meet every other weekend and are designed to prime students for a productive artistic future.

STUDY ABROAD:

Our summer study abroad program exists as an extension of our curriculum and provides an opportunity for our students to re-discover the works of the writers in their native geographic setting.  

Our study abroad is also available for non-current students who wish to give our program a try. There is no obligation to continue as a student.

"The Creative Writing program’s weekend format has allowed me to balance family, school and my current literary endeavors. The program and its dynamic curriculum is also preparing me to enter a doctoral program and accomplishing my goal of teaching at the university level."
