Course Offerings and Sample Plans of Study

Students enrolling in the MA in English can expect to see at least three courses offered each fall and spring, and at least two courses in the summer. The program will have at least one online class in each semester, although the program cannot be completed entirely online since not every required course will be offered in an online format.

The two below attachments provide an overview of the kinds of courses that may be offered in regular semesters and a two-year sample plan for how thesis and comprehensive exam students can complete the degree in two years.
