(above) our unique limited-residency format

Though you will have five years to complete all the degree requirements, most students take two years to complete the MA; three years to complete the MFA. Each year you have the opportunity to participate in two nine-day residencies at Goucher where you will work intensively with faculty and peers and learn from site visits and guest speakers. Above is a sample program timeline indicating the typical time frame for completing the program. The number of credits you take each semester will determine how long it will take to complete the program.
