The English department offers four options for M.A. candidates. M.A. students enrolling for the first time must choose one of the four options listed below.
Literature & Literary Theory
Rhetoric and Composition
English Language Studies
A GTA appointment includes a tuition waiver plus a competitive stipend. In the first year, GTA appointees teach English 101 (first year composition) and English 102 (a required reading and writing course). Graduate students eventually have the opportunity to teach an introductory course in their field, and opportunities are available for a limited number of advanced GTAs to teach in the summer.
We do not currently offer any online degrees for the graduate program.
