English (M.A.)

Location Offered: 

Program Overview:

The MA in English provides the opportunity for students with diverse backgrounds and interests to develop their strengths and explore possibilities in a range of areas. Students select one of three tracks to apply to: a traditional concentration in Literature, including film studies; the Creative Writing track, which includes both creative writing and supporting literary study; and an innovative track in English Studies, where students develop an individualized plan of study in which they may choose coursework for Literature, Creative Writing and/or Professional and Technical Writing, according to their interests.

The program is small enough to foster a lively integrated community across the different tracks, yet graduate students have access to a wide range of course options. They get to work intensively with advisors of their choosing as they develop their research or creative interests.
