MFA Degree



Thesis Residency

During the thesis residency, graduating students defends their theses, give a public reading, and teach a class on a topic developed from annotations on the tutorial reading lists. After successfully defending their theses and discussing any required revisions with their thesis committees, students meet with the MFA thesis consultant, who will assist them in processing their theses according to university guidelines.
