  1. I'm pretty new to this forum, but I suspect this post would better fit in the Literature, Rhetoric, and Composition sub-forum. I personally haven't found any Creative Writing PhDs online, but I take that with a grain of salt. I've been looking into teaching-intensive programs and haven't considered online programs. None of the programs I've seriously looked into lack a second language requirement. What kind of goal do you have in acquiring a PhD? I think that will determine if an online PhD is compatible with your needs.
  2. Looking a the curriculum, this program aligns with my interests and past studies perfectly. However, I can't find much about its reputation online and according to its website only "Approximately 30% of students in the program receive some type of financial assistance from the university, such as fellowships, scholarships or graduate assistantships." which are both red flags for me. I've been looking at fully-funded interdisciplinary media studies programs that have reputations outside of their websites until this point. Does anyone have any information about this program or programs simi
  3. Yeah, my BFA right now it's basically 100% workshopping and while there's aspects of it I enjoy, I realized that I'm ultimately more interested in other people's creative output more than my own. I appreciate the perspective you shared because I realize I'm already feeling that split and it's not working out well. Do you have a sense of how much research experience we're expected to have when we enter a graduate English program?
  4. Thank you, this helps a lot! I was looking into Stanford's MTL, Duke Lit, and Berkeley's Rhetoric so it helps to hear I'm on the right track. I wasn't aware of the grad strikes either, so I appreciate the information. I'm meeting with an advisor today so hopefully that will provide me with more direction. Since you were in a similar situation, can I ask what influenced your school application decisions?
  5. Hello everyone. This is a cross-post with a topic I made in the Humanities board. I'm currently a Junior in a BFA Creative Writing program; however, I studied English at my previous college. I need help deciding where to focus my academic efforts over the next 9 months so that I'm not applying to programs which are beyond my skill-set. I've considered pursing an MFA, but after speaking with my advisors I feel that a PhD program better suits my current interests. I'm much less interested in publishing creative work in literary journals than I am in understanding the rhetoric of artist
