Interdisciplinary Requirement Change
As you all know, all MFA students are required to choose an interdisciplinary course as one of their three electives. MFA students still may do this, but we’re no longer going to require it. With the closing of the MALS program, and more MALS students graduating, the number of current MALS students is very small. Thus, we’re only offering a few interdisciplinary courses a year. We understand the frustration that MFA and MALS students feel because of the lack of choices. Students can continue to take interdisciplinary courses as electives, but they won’t be required to do so. This applies to all of our MFA students. We will continue to offer some of our most successful interdisciplinary courses, those that encourage students to write creatively. We also will offer electives focusing on reading and writing. In the spring we’re offering a mixed-genre course entitled “The Written Image: Inhabiting the World of Visual Art” and “Art, Science, Nature, and Spirit.” We are taking a year off from offering our very popular “Creative Process” course, taught by Pat Francisco, but it will return next year.
