BFA student writing on the lawn

No one says good-bye when they graduate the BFA program because the relationships continue. The writing continues. The love continues.
—Jamie Neese, BFA, 2002, Post-production, ABC studios

BFA in Creative Writing

For our undergraduate students, we offer both a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, as well as a minor in creative 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).
