Description

The BFA Program offers students the opportunity to work with faculty who are practicing writers in workshop-style classes to discover and develop their writing strengths in the genres of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. Small classes, an emphasis on individual conferencing, and the development of a writing portfolio allow students to see themselves as artists and refine their writing. In literature courses, students become more familiar with British and American literature, developing their abilities to read and interpret literary and cultural materials. They gain experience in the literary or publishing world through an apprenticeship.
