VICTORIA - The University of Houston-Victoria (UHV) will offer a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in creative writing in spring 2013 as the university’s first terminal degree. The new program will prepare students for careers in creative writing, communication and teaching.
The MFA in creative writing will be a low-residency program with courses online to accommodate students in the Crossroads region and beyond. Another unique aspect of UHV’s MFA in creative writing is the option of a Latino literature and culture component.
The decision to start the MFA at UHV comes on the heels of the university launching a Bachelor of Arts in humanities — creative writing in fall 2012.
A terminal degree is the highest academic degree in a field of study. In other fields, a doctorate is required, but the Master of Fine Arts serves as the final degree in fine arts. A master’s degree opens doors to graduates in both writing and teaching.
