From all over the world! Take distance education classes online while remaining at home. Optional summer intensives on the Vancouver campus of UBC enable you to meet faculty and other students face-to-face, and provide a complement to the work performed online.
You graduate with the same degree, and are evaluated by the same criteria and standards. The Optional-Residency Advantage 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. Study fiction, non-fiction, poetry, screenwriting, playwriting, writing for children, graphic novel, songwriting and translation.
Students are required to 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. Study full-time or part-time Students can maintain full-time status by taking as little as 12 credits a year six per term.
Students who require more time to complete their degrees may wish to study part-time, but will be ineligible for financial support. Summer Residency The residencies anchor the online courses, bringing students and faculty together at the beautiful Vancouver campus of UBC each July for ten days of workshops, seminars and community.
The residencies are great experiences, but they are entirely optional. Some students complete their entire degree at a distance. Workshops Online The workshop format is at the core of the study of creative writing; online workshop critique is a powerful way for students to learn critical reading and writing skills and to make connections with other writers that will last beyond your time in school.
At the end of it all, you will emerge with a body of work in at least three different genres as well as your thesis, a book-length manuscript or full length production of your original creative work.
