The Program in Creative Writing at the University of Alabama offers a lively and innovative 48-hour course of study culminating in the MFA degree.
The MFA thesis is required of all degree candidates. While this final project usually consists of a book-length manuscript, theses that are not strictly print-based may also be submitted. Thesis projects are prepared under the direction of a thesis adviser, who advises the student for their final two semesters in the program. Candidates for the MFA are examined on their final projects by a committee of three faculty members, including the adviser and one faculty member from outside the MFA faculty.
