About the Program

The Master of Arts in Writing is a 33-credit-hour program that offers courses in professional writing, creative writing, composition/rhetoric, literature, and linguistics. Graduation from the program will also require successful completion of a final thesis.

Students can enroll full-time or part-time, and many graduate writing courses are flexibly scheduled to accommodate part-time learners who work full-time. There are also internship opportunities for students who want to gain writing-related work experience that can be credited toward the 33 required hours.

In 2012 the English Department expects to add a publishing lab that will house not only certain graduate courses, but will also be open to graduate students who want experience with publishing and editing software. Graduate students interested in literary or digital publishing will also have opportunities to work on Waccamaw, the department’s online literary journal.
