MASTER OF ARTS IN ENGLISH LITERATURE

The program consists of 69 credit hours with 20 courses. The emphasis is laid on an understanding of both the significance and the history of British and American literatures while fostering appreciation of the richness and variety of various literary texts. An important aspect of the program is dissertation writing in the final semester that prepares the students for their future research. We offer rigorous training in developing interpretive thinking and precise expression, which helps students in inventing ideas, organizing them, drawing deductions, and articulating them in eloquent and convincing ways. The program features the study of literary genres, rhetoric, and the poetic and narrative arts while focusing on the various roles literary writing and its presentation play in almost every aspect of human experience.
