Graduate Programs in English

The Department of English offers graduate work leading to the Master of Arts degree, which is designed for students who are prepared to undertake advanced work in the field. The program provides a range of courses in literatures in English, including British, American, and Anglophone literature; composition and rhetorical theory; cultural studies; and literary history, theory, and critical methods. Students in the program go on to work in humanities-related fields from higher education and K-12 teaching to arts education and public relations; still others others pursue the degree solely for their own interest and enrichment.
