Master of Arts in

English Literature

This 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 literature and to foster an appreciation of the richness and variety of texts in the language. We offer rigorous training in interpretive thinking and precise expression, teaching students to invent ideas, organize them, draw deductions and make connections to new ideas, and articulate them in eloquent and convincing ways. The English post graduation program features the study of imaginative language, rhetoric, and the poetic and narrative arts and it focuses on the roles imaginative writing and presentations play in almost every aspect of human experience.
