Nonfiction Writing Program

The Nonfiction Writing Program at the University of Iowa awards an MFA degree to accomplished students of literary nonfiction. Most often, the 48 semester-hour program takes three years to complete, culminating in a thesis of at least 75 pages, either a sustained essay or a collection of shorter pieces. Work in the essay and on prose style is a fundamental feature of the program.
