Fiction Concentration

Designed to equip student writers with an understanding of plot, character, theme and style, our undergraduate fiction concentration provides a rigorous grounding in the fundamentals of storytelling while at the same time allowing for latitude in creative thought. The degree helps writers hone their writing and analytical skills, which are benchmarks of professional excellence in any discipline.


All students have opportunities to

  • conduct independent research
  • engage in globally-related activities through coursework and language study at Mason and abroad
  • participate in many forms of public service
  • prepare for their future careers through internships, career-focused minors and other college-to-career activities
