The Master of Arts in English provides students with strong practical and theoretical grounding as they prepare to move forward into careers or into graduate and professional schools. Students will learn advanced methods for deeper study of literature written in English, the fundamentals of composition as a discipline, and practical writing skills through courses in professional and rhetorical writing. Courses will place texts within wider cultural and multicultural debates. Through assigned writings students will articulate informed viewpoints on real-world issues and practice various forms of professional and critical writing, learning to interpret texts in contexts ranging from academic debate to the contemporary classroom to a variety of professional settings.
