Follow your dreams – on a schedule you devise.
At Albertus Magnus College, you can earn your MFA in writing in just two years – without sacrificing family time or making demands on the job that pays your bills.
Traditional MFA programs force you to be a full-time student. Low-residency programs encroach on your career and family life – and that’s assuming you have the luxury of taking off two weeks each year.
The MFA in Writing at Albertus lets you follow your dreams – on a schedule you devise.
Each semester, you meet on campus for just three Saturdays of intensive classroom sessions and writing workshops. The rest of the time, you pursue your studies online at your own pace – guided by an award-winning faculty, and encouraged by a community of like-minded student writers.
This convenient yet demanding program develops the insights, discipline, and skills of the professional writer.
Blending personalized attention to the individual’s needs with the utilization of Internet technology to create a virtual community of writers, the MFA in Writing at Albertus Magnus College combines flexibility with excellence, and provides a formative experience for writers seeking to hone their craft.
