Courses

The primary focus of the Master of Arts in English is the study of literature and language. Students pursue one of four concentrations in Digital Literary Studies, English Pedagogy, Literature, or Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Coursework taken outside a student’s concentration will generally not count toward the Master of Arts in English. Competency requirements, if a condition of a student’s admission, may be met with equivalent coursework; they do not count toward the Master of Arts in English.
