Re: [rabbitlight21] Brown Curriculum

In Reply To
Hey, can anyone fill me in on how Brown's mfa program is structured? How many classes does one take per semester? How much room is there for electives? How long is the program in general? Is funding any good? Sorry I know I have alot of questions but I just can't seem to find any answers anywhere else.

All of these are on the website (, but to answer your questions:

1. The program requires one workshop and one elective per semester, so one takes
2. Two classes per semester. (Your last semester is spent preparing your thesis.)
3. There's a lot of room for electives (50%).
4. The program is two years long.
5. Funding is pretty good. All first-year students receive a fellowship or proctorship that covers tuition and affords a small stipend. All students in good standing who are "appropriately qualified" (whatever that means) get TAships, so that funding covers the second year.

Hans Landa: You'll be shot for this!
Aldo Raine: Nah, I don't think so. More like chewed out. I've been chewed out before.
