From the UNR website: "The MA Writing emphasis is designed for students who wish to strengthen their skills as writers while deepening their understanding of literature and language. MA Writing students may opt for intensive study in composition research and teaching or in creative writing, with cognate work in linguistics, literature, or literacy studies. Students may choose either a non-thesis or thesis program of study, with a range of creative or research project options available in the latter."
