Post-Master’s Certificate in Writing Enrichment

Miss your MFA days?

You can earn a Post-Master’s Certificate in Writing Enrichment.

Wherever you earned your MFA, or MA with creative thesis, Spalding’s Post-Master’s Certificate in Writing Enrichment brings you back to your writing with a low-residency semester of study in any of the creative writing genres we teach. Or you can study professional writing, adding a valuable new dimension to your writing abilities.

If you earned your degree somewhere other than Spalding, the Post-Master’s Certificate offers another invaluable benefit: a lifetime of access to the best MFA alumni association going. Our alum association offers year-round opportunities: professional development at spring and fall residencies in Louisville, literary-themed travel during summer residencies abroad, local get-togethers with other alums, and online writing groups to keep you engaged.

The 15-hour certificate includes a 3-hour residency course, which you can complete on campus or during a summer residency abroad, and a 12-hour independent study course, completed from home while you work one-on-one with a Spalding MFA faculty mentor.

Financial aid is available.
