Notes: * =
Program offers a creative nonfiction genre specialization only; ^ = Data includes
both master’s and doctoral candidate applications; ^^ = Program offers an internal minor in creative writing. Students complete a critical rather than
creative dissertation, but can take up to six for-credit workshops in fiction
or poetry with students in the University of Wisconsin-Madison MFA program. Applicants must be separately
admitted to the internal minor following admission to, and
matriculation with, the University's Literary Studies doctoral
program.
