Very few internships available for people in my major. This may different for people who are not attending Antioch for their MFA in Creative Writing, though. Once in a while a teacher or mentor, or an alum, will need help with a project and internships become available. On the whole, I am not familiar with any consistent internship availabilities, though.

The graduate program is creative writing, at least at the Los Angeles campus (there might be a psychology Master's program, too, but we don't interact much). It's an excellent program, with astute, interested mentors guiding students along their own paths. One of the things I really love about Antioch is the Field Study -- we must get involved with our local community in a way that combines literature/writing and social justice issues. The workload is fine, what you might expect from a grad program, and also a bit flexible. They understand that many students here are adults working this program into lives already full of responsibilities (though some students are also right out of undergraduate level studies).

I'm in the low-residency program for Creative Writing, and I find it absolutely fantastic. We meet in person during residency, then stay connected through the internet during the rest of the term. The mentors are all accomplished authors, the majority of whom are also excellent at seeing the big picture of one's work as well as line editing.
The most important criteria for admission would be talent as a writer and proof that you can commit to being self-disciplined. It's really a super program.

My major is Creative Writing (low residency, MFA). I'm quite happy with the program. I like the format of working with mentors in small groups. I'm amazed at how much I'm learning. It's as though you have this idea you or your work needs only a little tweaking. Then you get to school and realize how much you didn't know you didn't know. My major gripes are twofold: low-residency just isn't as immediate as in-person. A lot of work is done online, which means when you get to the residency you have to pack a LOT of information and work into 9 days. It's draining. The other thing I'd like to see is semester-long seminars. Right now you attend residency and sit in on seminars of your choosing, take notes (if you choose) and turn in papers on what you learned from the seminars. Some of the issues are so compelling that I'd like to see some seminar topics made into semester-long courses. Oh and there's the little matter of the breaks. You don't get any. There's very little downtime/breaks between semesters.
Still, I would definitely do it all over again; my goals are to be a writer making a living writing, possibly in conjunction with collegiate teaching. Of course I'm concerned about finding work in my field. The whole world's falling apart and jobs are scarce for almost everyone. It's a gamble, but most worthwhile things turn out to be.

I am finding the MAP, Master's of Psychology, program at Antioch University LA to be a great experience. I feel it has already broadened my understanding of the diversity of client's I might treat in my psychologist practice.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
