MFA Low Residency | 6 Terms | 60 Credits

MFA Low Residency students graduating in 2023 and beyond will choose one of two routes.

  • Route 1: This option offers a more condensed course load. While it offers a hybrid mode of delivery, the curriculum is more closely aligned with our MFA Full Residency, which provides additional opportunities for community engagement and building relationships across programs. Domestic students who elect to take this route are eligible to apply for BC student loans.
  • Route 2: Students in this route will also complete their studies in six terms, but the course load is reduced and spread out to offer a more part-time schedule. For those with other concurrent commitments, this route provides additional flexibility. Students who elect to take this route are not eligible for BC student loans.
