Create a portfolio you’re proud of
Regardless of your plans for the future, our BFA offers a strong, supportive mentorship program where you’ll create a body of publishable work suitable for use in graduate school applications, future employment opportunities, and as a demonstration of your writing skills.
Your writing studio time will be enriched by a carefully selected peer group, an editorial board of three dedicated faculty members, a studio supervisor, and an outside reviewer. Over the course of the semester, you’ll complete a full-length creative manuscript or professional portfolio.
Personal transformation, creative inspiration
Our program focuses on the growth of your creative ethos as an author. You’ll study the creative process, understanding it on a profound level, while growing your professional skills as a writer.
Our roots in the expansion of personal awareness will help you achieve inner and outer balance, bringing your writing to a compelling new level of depth and expression.
Meditate and create
As a student at MIU, you’ll practice the Transcendental Meditation® technique daily.
This evidence-based technique reduces stress, enhances clear thinking, and gets you in touch with the deepest, most authentic part of yourself to help you create in a whole new way.
