Notes
: HM = Honorable Mention; NR = Not Ranked; * = due to the relatively small number of nonfiction programs, only top twenty rankings are noted here; ** = “writing for screen and television” only; *** = “dramatic writing” only; **** = bilingual program; ^ = See the “Non-MFA Master’s Degree (MA) Programs” section of “2012 MFA Rankings: The Methodology” for more information on the inclusion of this program in these rankings; ^^ = The degree offered by this program is arguably co-terminal to the MFA; ^^^= This program can neither be classified as a low- or full-residency MFA program, so it appears provisionally in these rankings; ^^^^ = Program may limit admissions on the basis of nationality, language skills, and/or political affiliation.
