Key facts

Three-Year M.F.A. in Creative Writing

The  Fine Arts - Creative Writing program at Syracuse University is committed to creating a supportive environment for its students. As a program that aims to nurture new voices, we particularly want to welcome writers from underrepresented communities. We encourage people of color to apply. We believe a program is at its best when it is comprised of strong writers from a full spectrum of backgrounds and experiences.

POC-identified students can join a POC student group that is responsible for annually nominating a candidate to represent diversity and general student concerns on the creative writing committee.

Our program also aims to be a comfortable and supportive environment for LGBTQ students, international students, veterans, first-generation college students, disabled students, and for everyone who chooses to join us.

Accreditation

Officially accredited and/or recognized by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
