2nd year MFA student Allison Rieff leads a 1st year editing class.

As the MFA is a terminal degree, we believe it is imperative that we prepare our students to teach as well produce creative work.  Through the Professional Seminar: Teaching in Higher Education course we introduce students to major theories of teaching and learning and provide experience in the development of course materials and academic job portfolios.  Students also have the opportunity to participate in teaching practicums that allow them to work closely with faculty in the design, development, and delivery of an undergraduate course, or lower level DFP class.

We have also provided students with a variety of teaching experiences through collaborations with Davidson College and with R.J. Reynolds High School (an arts magnet school) and the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting.
