Combining a broad basis in English literary studies with the development of specialized interests, the MA program prepares students for success and provides a valuable credential as they pursue careers in secondary education, academia, and related fields.

In addition to the MA, students can earn interdisciplinary certificates in Cultural Studies, Philosophy, Women's and Gender Studies, and Writing and Rhetoric.
