The department offers several ways of earning graduate degrees from the M.A. and M.F.A. to the Ph.D, whether through part-time or full-time study. Our graduate programs have become very successful in a relatively short time, and the M.F.A. program with its international emphasis enjoys an especially high national ranking. Recent Ph.D. graduates have obtained tenure-track positions at institutions such as Sam Houston State University, Northwestern University, Snow College, and Hillsdale College.
