Program Description:

Hamline's interdisciplinary approach extends students' intellectual resources and range, and stimulates students to discover connections between their learning and their personal and professional lives. Hamline's liberal studies approach allows students to read from a writer's perspective and discover how a piece of writing works. The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies offers students the opportunity to range freely among academic, artistic, spiritual and professional issues and ideas. The Master of Fine Arts in Writing encourages students to write within, across and between genres, and join a community of writers and scholars in an intensive, book-driven program. In January, 2007, we introduced the MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, a low-residency program in which students and faculty meet on campus twice a year, each time for eleven days. The model accommodates working adults and those who do not wish to or cannot relocate to complete their graduate education.
