The Department of English offers several programs leading to the master of arts degree:
We offer graduate degrees in a wide variety of English studies on both the master’s and the doctoral levels.
Our students frequently prove themselves to be competent scholars long before they earn their degree. Every year, they make dozens of conference presentations, publish numerous articles, chapters, reviews, or pieces of creative writing, and are active in several professional organizations and projects. In addition, a handful of students each year organize and host Practical Criticism Midwest, a conference forum for graduate students to share work in the field of English.
Our graduate students are not just all work, though. There’s a lively spirit of social interaction and camaraderie. Graduate school study fills much of life, but we find ways to make that life extend beyond the library and classroom.
