Although they review applications at any time, the M.A. programs in rhetoric and composition, linguistics, TESOL, and TESOL/linguistics admit students only for Fall; M.A. programs in creative writing, literature, and general English admit students in Spring, Summer and Fall.
Assistantships deadline: If you wish to be considered for an assistantship, complete your application by January 15.
