Academics: I feel confident about my choice of schools. That it will offer me the best outcome. Also the only accredited school to offer my specialty in the field of my choice as part of the Master's curriculum.

Academics: A bit nervous about the workload but I think that would be true of any Master's Program.

Academics: This only applies to the MFA in Creative Writing program, which is very specific. The bulk of our work centers around writing, as is to be expected. The thing I miss is having semester-long seminars that coincide with the writing. For example, during residency you are offered many different seminars on aspects of writing and literature, but once you leave the residency, those seminars are not carried through the term.

We do have certain requirements, though: first term, a field study project that you design. Its focus is on social justice issues and writing within your community. Students have done everything from begin a literary journal to teachings prisoners to write. Second term we are required to write a five page paper and participate in a translation seminar, third term we complete a critical paper and fourth term we turn in a manuscript. So there is a lot of work and things to boost your writing and understanding of literature. Just not quite as much as I'd like.

4 College Junior

Academics: I'm attending the Master's program in Creative Writing. It's a low-residency program, so the classes are set up differently from those in a traditional college. I love the mentor-student setup, where published authors serve as our instructors. I feel confident in their knowledge and have received excellent feedback and assistance. I appreciate, too, that the mentors I've encountered are there to guide, but do not come across as knowing the One True Way of Writing.
What I miss about the low-residency setup is the interpersonal interactions with fellow students. I'm also a bit of a school nerd. When we go to the residencies, we can take as many seminars as we wish; generally they last 50 to 120 minutes and are frequently fascinating, either on some issue of writing or social justice, frequently on a combination of the two. However, once these seminars are over, they're over. This is the other thing I miss; I like ongoing classes that last for months, that allow me to explore, along with fellow students, the issues at hand. It's a bit disappointing that we don't get the chance to do that.
The emphasis on social justice issues and creative writing, however, make up for that fairly well.

Academics: Very Academic – I am very stimulated in most of my classes.
Antioch is about diversity, reading, writing, getting involved in community.
Making a difference.
