Upon acceptance, each graduate student is assigned a first-year adviser. Permanent major advisers, along with Thesis Review Committees, are selected in the second year.

The Major Adviser 

The major adviser plays a vital role in guiding the graduate student through completion of the MFA process. This guidance may be in the form of taking hours, but also includes suggesting course work, informing the student of the process and requirements for each review, and overseeing development of the written thesis.

Each graduate student is responsible for seeking guidance of their major Adviser and for keeping them informed of developments in their research and thesis work.
