Re: [teeninga] International Students
[In reply to]
I'm in the MFA program at The Ohio State University, where a Canadian woman finished a degree last year. As far as I know, she didn't have any trouble with either funding or enrollment.
We don't have playwriting courses, officially, though. Friends of mine have taken screenwriting courses in the theater department, and I believe playwriting is also available there.
You might check out Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, where I know playrwriting is available, as well as a relatively new MFA program at Georgia College & State University, which also has a playwriting concentration.
Best of luck,
I'm new to this website. I've really enjoyed looking through all the posts about MFA programs, since I am in the process of applying to different schools. My question regards international students and entrance into American Universities' MFA programs. I hail from Canada, but would like to apply to more schools than the two here that offer MFA's in creative writing.
Does anyone know if certain American MFA programs would be reticent to admit international students? Canadians can no longer apply to American low residency programs because homeland security has deemed it unsafe. (Does anyone else find that funny?) My list of US colleges so far: U of T @ Michener, University of New Orleans, Florida State & Cincinnati. My list is short because I am set on going somewhere that encourages playwriting, as well as fiction.
If anyone has any relevant information, I would love it if you could pass it on to me!
