Information on degree prerequisites, admission requirements and a list of courses are found in the Graduate Course Catalog.
In addition to application materials required for the MA, dual-degree applicants must submit a portfolio of creative work. You should submit work that best represents your style and demonstrates your potential. The portfolio should include 20-30 pages of fiction or nonfiction OR 10-15 pages of poetry. While we offer courses in additional genres, please stick to fiction, nonfiction, or poetry in the application writing sample. If you submit a portfolio with work from more than one genre, please do not exceed 30 pages total. Please adhere to these length limits.
