  • Academic Title
    Master of Arts in English
  • Course description

    Class work must include a graduate seminar (half or full-year) in the thesis area; at least one graduate seminar in a field unrelated to the thesis; and additional seminars in English to make up the equivalent of two and a half full-year seminars. Master's students must also complete ENGL 8000, the MA thesis prospectus, usually in the winter semester. With the approval of the Graduate Committee, a graduate class in another department relevant to the candidate's thesis may take the place of one of the additional seminars, and under certain conditions a reading class may take the place of the seminar in the thesis area.

    Before graduation all students are required to demonstrate some proficiency in at least one language other than English that is relevant to their studies.

    A thesis, equivalent to two classes, is required.
