The M.A. program in English gives you the opportunity to undertake advanced study in the field of your choosing through either the writing of a thesis or the completion of 36 hours of coursework. The foundational courses for the M.A. degree overlap with those of the Ph.D., giving you the flexibility to move directly from the master's program to the doctoral program as your career plans develop.
Our students appreciate the advantages offered by a dynamic department that is growing in size, strengthening its faculty, building its resources, and raising its national and international profile. They also enjoy being part of a warm and supportive community of fellow writers and scholars.
Because it develops your writing and communication skills, an M.A. in English prepares you for a range of careers. Our students become authors, editors, freelance writers, technical writers, lawyers, and English teachers—and cheese mongers (see video below).
