MFA Program Components
UAA's MFA program is oriented towards students who have an already well developed voice in their chosen genre. These are generally experienced writers with a small body of work and are dedicated to becoming writers and living the writing life.
The structure of a low-residency program requires that students possess self-discipline, initiative, and a commitment to the rigors of graduate-level study. Ideally, students should be:
- Able to demonstrate their potential to work at the graduate level;
- Committed to the reading and writing schedules agreed upon by the students and faculty member;
- Willing to explore a world wider than their own experience.
