Goddard College was established in 1938 as a progressive experiment in education that pushed the boundaries beyond traditional methods of study and encouraged “thinking outside the box.” Goddard developed the model for the first ever low-residency MFA in Creative Writing, which continues as an academically rigorous full time program nurturing individuality and intellectual freedom.
