CLA's masters of fine arts (MFA) creative writing program ranks 14th out of 140 in the U.S., according to Poets & Writers magazine. The ranking was based on surveys of a group who are highly motivated to be objective, have done extensive research, and have much at stake in the results--current and prospective applicants.
CLA's highest sub-ranking was in the nonfiction category (eighth), and its lowest was for student-funding packages (27th). It ranked 10th for placement of grads in highly regarded post-MFA programs, a proxy for program quality and reputation. The program makes its home in the English department.
