M.A./M.F.A. Program with Kingston University (UK) | Department of English | UNC Charlotte
The Department of English teaches writing from a basis of consciousness, nurturing the full creative potential of developing poets and writers so it can flourish. At the heart of our teaching is a unique emphasis on the creative process, an approach that places the writer at the center. In all of our classes, we create a safe space to help students grow in skill, self-confidence, and direction. We take mentorship seriously and are committed to bringing out the best in our students. We believe that a nurturing, inclusive, and socially aware learning environment inspires students to find authentic material and develop an authentic voice. Our classrooms are creative laboratories where students can unguardedly experiment with subject matter and craft; if students feel comfortable making mistakes and trying new things, they are bound to discover new frontiers, finding themselves energized with the possibilities and power of creation. From this basis of deep respect and creative flow, we delve into a rigorous academic exploration of craft and technique.
