Creative Writing

The Master of Fine Arts program at Wichita State University, now in its 40th anniversary, is a three-year, studio-academic program in fiction or poetry writing with students in full residence. Our MFA students receive financial support from the university through graduate teaching assistantships and fellowships. The Huffington Post has named our program to its list of “Top 25 Underrated Creative Writing MFA Programs.”

At the undergraduate level, we offer Bachelor of Arts students a 33-hour major in creative writing with classes in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction writing. Both the graduate and undergraduate programs are part of Wichita State’s Department of English.
