The Department of English
The Program in Creative Writing is housed in the congenial Department of English, which attracts graduate students from around the world & offers MA degrees in TESOL & Renaissance Studies, as well as coursework leading to MA's & PhD's in English (including a PhD in Rhetoric & Composition).
Every other year, the English Department sponsors the University of Alabama Symposium, which brings men and women of letters to campus for three days to focus on some area of literary study (the 2002 topic is "English and Ethnicity") and The Hudson Strode Program in Renaissance Studies yearly produces a series of lectures. English Department Faculty, many of whose writing pushes the envelope of scholarly boundaries, teach a range of courses that complement and support creative writing offerings, and have established interdisciplinary relationships across campus. Please visit the department's website for more information.
Creative Writing also maintains close ties with The Institute for the Book Arts, another MFA-granting program at UA, which offers its students training and experience in the production of fine books: collaboration between MFA programs is fostered by both faculty and students.
