English - MA

Our graduate program is highly regarded for its teaching, research and innovation. Students can choose intensive study of critical theory, cultural theory, film theory, minority literature and women’s studies, as well as traditional areas, such as 19th century, modern and contemporary literature. We offer a terminal master’s degree in English for students who wish to earn only a master's degree or who wish to explore education at the graduate level before committing to a PhD program. At any point during the MA program, a student may apply to the PhD program.
