Program Description:

The master’s degree in English at Notre Dame of Maryland University is a 30-credit comprehensive curriculum designed both to provide students with the content and methodologies requisite to becoming better teachers of English at the secondary level and to prepare students for doctoral-level work in English. The courses focus on breadth of content, providing broad surveys of English, American, and world literature while also requiring a depth of knowledge in literary research, history, and interpretation. Students will hone their critical thinking and writing skills as they master the concepts and theories central to the study of literature. The program is distinctive in its emphasis on issues of gender: Notre Dame’s mission focuses on women’s ability to transform the world through education, and all courses in this program teach literature by women and address issues of women in literature.


Notre Dame of Maryland University is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and by the Maryland State Department of Education.
