The online Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing is a two- to three-year program that provides the skills and experience you need to become a successful writer. MFA students complete 30 credit hours each year and complete the program in two years. Curriculum during the first year is tailored to writing workshops and the second year you will focus on online coursework and your thesis.
Our summer residencies form strong MFA cohorts that are tight-knit groups, which offer sustained, creative experiences and inspiration during the online portion of the program. Some MFA students pursue an optional third year to write a second thesis in a second genre. As an MFA graduate, you will have honed your writing craft and developed the creative skills to be successful.
EOU offers a generous transfer policy for course credits to make it even more affordable and accessible to learn. The online MFA in Creative Writing program accepts up to 15 transfer credits.
