Completion of the program will lead to the degree: Master of Arts (M.A.).
The Master of Arts in English Program is designed to fill the needs of individuals seeking a graduate degree entirely on a part-time basis. Many classes are offered in late afternoon or evening hours throughout the normal school year. Pending sufficient enrollment, summer courses also may be offered. It is possible to enroll on a full-time basis as well. Completion of the terminal degree of master of arts in English may enable persons in such professional areas as education, law, government and business to reaffirm and extend their commitment to such work activities or make a career change. In addition to providing a sense of personal satisfaction, the Master of Arts in English degree also may provide a foundation for continued studies elsewhere toward a doctor of philosophy in English or other closely related fields in the humanities.
