The Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Program at the University of Tampa is providing me with the knowledge and tools that I will need to live a life in the arts and in publishing. The faculty is accessible and knowledgeable, and they are dedicated to helping us achieve our literary goals. It is a small but growing program that appeals to aspiring writers of all ages from all over the world. Applying to this program was the best academic decision for me, and I look forward to the next two years of working hard and making lasting friendships in the literary world.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

This MBA program is the perfect fit for me. The classes are very small and the student body very diverse. The best thing about the school is how accessible the faculty is for students. I have made so many valuable connections with the faculty at this university. Yes, the workload is substantial, but its graduate school and that is to be expected. The MBA program is one of the more affordable programs in the nation and it is well worth more than I pay. The Tampa Bay Area is a great place to live and network. Although, the housing nearby the university is a little pricey. Overall, I love this program and all I have learned at the University of Tampa.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2016

The newly established and quickly growing Low Residency Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Program offers a unique opportunity to aspiring writers who have established livelihoods in other parts of the country and the world. Traveling to Tampa for two ten-day residencies for two years, students work closely with professorial mentors and professional writers to develop their writing habits and techniques. Upon returning to their "normal" lives, MFA students read, write, and participate in online discussions with their fellow students. It is an opportunity to follow a passion for writing without giving up jobs or leaving behind families for an extended amount of time. I am thrilled to be part of such an up-and-coming program, and I look forward to growing alongside a dedicated faculty and passionate, ambitious students.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a low residency program which is conducive to functioning around a work life. The faculty and staff are helpful, caring and able to assist with most needs. The tuition is a bit high because it is a private university, however, the quality of education makes it worthwhile.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Tampa has a very hands-on approach in it's graduate business program. In my first semester, I am already enjoying the benefits of extremely accessible professors and collaborative group projects. The networks available to students upon graduation from UT are vast, as the school has partnerships with many large employers in the area, in the country and even internationally. The University of Tampa does not simply provide a degree, but also an invaluable educational experience, a huge network of potential employers and a close-knit group of peers and professors to learn and grow from.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

This MFA program is one of the few low-residency programs available in Florida. The Creative Writing staff is made up of exceptional writers and educators, and the curriculum is catered for independent study. The program is excellent for anyone who is serious about getting into the field of writing with an idea of the genre or direction they plan to go. From my experience, the university's use of technology is a little unorganized and complicated. Because this graduate program is low-residency, the generic information they provide for incoming students is inapplicable, and doing a little research is necessary. Fortunately, the advisors and staff are pleasantly helpful, and with a phone call or email they will provide you with guidance and answers to any questions you may have. Overall it's a great program for students who like to work independently and who have an idea of the type of writing they would like to get published. The lectures, readings, and interaction with students and staff provide a great networking system. I am grateful that this program allows me to develop my particular style of writing rather than try to steer me into a formula based system. Altogether, excellent program for the independent writer looking to develop their personal style while building contacts of other professionals in their market.
