About Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing and Theatre at The University of British Columbia

Program Overview

We are Canada's oldest and most respected MFA Program in Creative Writing. Offering an unprecedented 11 genres for potential study, students work in a learner-centered, workshop-driven program which offers an exciting breadth of choices, award-winning faculty and a setting in one of the world's most beautiful and livable cities.

What sets the UBC program apart?

A Focus on Writing
We emphasize the creation and critical discussion of original writing rather than the study of literature or literary criticism. Readings are assigned or suggested by instructors where appropriate, but there is not a significant reading or criticism component to the degree.

Eleven Genres of Study
More than any other Creative Writing Program in the world. Study fiction, non-fiction, poetry, screenwriting, playwriting, radio drama, writing for children, lyric & libretto, graphic novel, new media writing and translation. Students work in at least three separate genres during the course of their degree - literary cross-training that makes our graduates more well-rounded writers and opens more doors for teaching and publication.

Award-winning Faculty
Our faculty members are all working writers, with multiple awards, international publication and production records to their names.
