Language & Literature 423
We have a small, but personalized, graduate program, admitting between 8-15 new students per year. This allows us to offer small graduate seminars, flexible course of study, and meaningful interactions between faculty and graduate students both inside and outside of class.
Our graduate students are strongly supported both in their academic studies and professional development, as evidenced by their conference presentations, grant awards, and publications. They also support each other academically and personally through workshops, poetry readings, and other social events.
The English Department offers two specializations for the Master of Arts degree (both options can be completed in person or online):
Our alumni teach in private and public secondary schools, colleges, universities, and English language institutes (in the U.S. and abroad), work in publishing, creative writing, the non-profit sector, and private industry.
They have also been accepted to many outstanding Ph.D and MFA programs, including Syracuse, Texas A & M, Florida State University, University of Houston, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, University of Louisiana-Lafayette, Southern Illinois University, University of Rhode Island, Carnegie Mellon University, University of New Hampshire, University of Idaho, and Marquette University.
We welcome your inquiries. To find out more about our admission requirements and assistantships, send a request for information or contact us directly.
