February 1, 2019 marks the date when applications close for our Master of Science in Marine Biology, and our Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. The purpose of the Graduate Program in Marine Biology is to offer students a well-rounded, Master’s degree level of education in marine biology that will allow graduates to pursue further study or professional employment in marine science. The curriculum is designed to provide students with breadth in their education, while focused research projects develop depth.
The MFA in Creative Writing offers advanced degree training to students who wish to gain expertise in the writing of poetry and fiction. The program assumes that, as in music or the visual arts, the best education for the artist includes: training in the history and traditions associated with the student’s discipline, training in theoretical and formal approaches to the craft, and intensive peer and faculty feedback.
All applications submitted by January 31, 2019 will have their application fee waived! If you’re thinking about graduate school, this month is a great time to apply! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding our masters programs and graduate certificates!
