Historical Note

The New School established a Master's in Fine Arts (MFA) in Creative Writing in 1996. The Graduate Writing Program, as it was called in literature produced by The New School, is situated in the Schools of Public Engagement, formerly known as the Adult Division, the "founding" division of the New School for Social Research as it was conceived in 1919. Designed as a full-time, four semester program, classes are taught by working writers.

Scope and Content of Collection

This record group is comprised of theses in print and electronic formats submitted to the MFA Writing Program as part of graduation requirements. The program's four concentrations -- fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and writing for children -- are represented. Many of the theses consist of two parts, a work reflecting the student's concentration and a "literature project" for which the student conducted scholarly, analytical research.

While printed and bound theses date back to 1998, only the years 2006 and 2008 through 2011 are well-represented in print theses. Some information may be incomplete as thesis cover pages may be unsigned by the advisor, or the advisor's signature is illegible. The collection inventory should not be considered a definitive list of all program graduates for a particular year. For confirmation of graduation, it is necessary to verify with the university's Office of the Registrar. As of 2015, the New School Archives staff has not reconciled this guide's inventory with official graduation rosters. Please alert the New School Archives to any inaccuracies.

Electronic theses begin with the class of 2015. These theses were submitted directly by students to the New School Archives. Some students chose not to place their thesis with the New School Archives. Therefore, even more current years should not be considered a complete roster of all graduating student work.
