WCSU Covid-19 Information Fall 2021

MFA Creative & Professional Writing


Everything you need to know about your thesis in one place.

Your thesis is a culmination of what you’ve learned and a chance to showcase the professional full-length work you complete in the WCSU MFA Program.

In your final semester, you will register for 8 credit-hours of thesis work. This time is designed to allow you to complete your final thesis, a book-length (or appropriate equivalent) piece of work in your primary genre (or, perhaps in some cases, a combination of the primary and the secondary genre). The completed thesis must be approved by your thesis committee (first reader, second reader, and MFA Coordinator) before you receive a degree. The committee will judge the thesis on the quality and publishability of the work.
