The Master of Arts degree in English (M.A.) is designed for students pursuing advanced studies in English. Candidates in this degree program come from varied academic backgrounds. Some simply want to extend their undergraduate background and complete an M.A. in English, while others are destined for a Ph.D. and a college teaching career. A number of our M.A. students are already certified teachers in private or public schools and want an advanced degree in English for professional reasons. Finally, not a small number simply want to acquire the M.A. as an end in and of itself.
