Michael Wadkins, BFA Graduate May 2014

I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to the UNCW Creative Writing Department for their profound generosity and support... You guys are family to me.
—Michael Wadkins, BFA 2014, UNCW College of Health & Human Services

BFA in Creative Writing

For our undergraduate students, we offer both a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, as well as a minors in poetry writing and creative nonfiction writing. Like the MFA degree, the BFA combines studio workshops in creative writing with courses in literature, aesthetics, and the other arts. Our primary genres are fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction. We also make available classes in editing and publishing through our Publishing Laboratory and in screenwriting through the Department of Film Studies (though we do not offer the BFA degree in screenwriting).
