Master's in English - Literature

Concentration in Literature

The MA program in English encourages students at once to prepare across several literary periods and genres and--if they wish--to focus their work upon a particular area of study that will lead to a specialized MA thesis. Our goal is a program that is flexible enough to allow at once for broad study of English for those wishing to prepare for a career in secondary teaching, and for sustained work in an area of the student's choice, as preparation either for pursuit of the PhD or for a career in publishing, writing, or a related field. Recent MA graduates have gone on to our own PhD program and to programs at LSU, UMass, Indiana, Maryland, Claremont, Purdue, Florida, Rice, Kansas, and Texas A & M, among others. Others have gone on to successful careers in teaching, publishing, technical writing, and similar fields.
