[1] A low-residency program is a form of education, normally at the university level, which involves some amount of distance education and brief one to two week on-campus residencies. These programs are most frequently offered by colleges and universities which also teach standard full-time courses, and most presently existing are Master's Degree programs in Fine Arts, often teaching creative writing. The first such program was developed by Evalyn Bates and launched in 1963 at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont.[1]

There are many low-residency MFA Creative Writing Programs, fewer in other graduate areas, and very few undergraduate options (Goddard College, Lesley University, New Hampshire Institute of Art and Union Institute.)
