MFA in Creative Writing and Literary Translation

The Advanced Certificate in English Language Teaching

Queens College is located in one of the most linguistically-diverse places on the planet. Our MFA program is one of the rare programs to offer both a degree in Creative Writing and Literary Translation.  With our new partnership, students now have the additional option of a Advanced Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language. 

In an increasingly competitive job market, where an MFA alone is often not sufficient to teach on the college-level, this Advanced Certificate in English Language Teaching will enhance the degree and give graduates other options.

For more information, see http://www.qc.edu/LCD/ling_advcert.htm.

Internships

A number of our students have held internships at New York City literary organizations, including The Poetry Society of America and The Asian American Writers Workshop. We do not offer course credit for internships but we encourage students to seek out these opportunities.

Teaching

Second students may have the opportunity to compete for teaching positions within the English Department. The number of courses available for MFA students each year varies and depends on budgetary constraints, but MFA students have taught creative writing, literature and composition.
