Students pursue these English programs at University of Windsor in a collegial and supportive environment with internationally renowned faculty dedicated to research, teaching, and publishing.
Our department offers various learning and internship opportunities including a graduate seminar in composition pedagogy unique in Canada.
We publish two international literary journals (Windsor ReView and Rampike); support two in-house student journals and an international website (thesicklytaper.com); and host a vibrant series of literary readings and scholarly presentations as well as a Writer in Residence and a Resident Writing Professional.
As our Creative Writing program is an MA rather than a terminal MFA, graduating students also have the option to proceed into English PhD programs.
Length of Program
Full-time students must complete work on a Master's degree within three years after their first registration as candidates. Students typically complete the thesis/creative writing stream in five semesters. Three or four terms of full-time registration should suffice to complete the course-work program. Programs of study involving a thesis or a project may require additional time. Part-time students admitted to candidacy should complete their work within five years after first registration.
