English PhD, MA, BA/MPA

The Graduate Program in English offers a Master of Arts and a Doctor of Philosophy degree program. The program’s main objective is to prepare students to be productive scholars and excellent teachers of English studies. To achieve this goal, we offer an ambitious range of courses in English, American and Anglophone literature, literacy theory, cultural studies, film studies, theatre history, rhetoric and composition, and the history of the English language. Students receive rigorous training in the methods of literary research and are encouraged to publish their work in scholarly and professional journals as part of their studies. Pedagogical training in the teaching of writing and literature, prepares students to teach a variety of courses. The department has a large number of full-time faculty, three of whom hold named chairs. Graduate students and faculty meet to share work outside the classroom in a rich array of student-faculty colloquia, scholarly lectures, and readings.
