M.A. in English
The versatile MA in English at Seton Hall helps you write your success story, whether you want advanced professional writing skills for a career in copywriting, grants, development, marketing, or PR; whether you aspire to get into a prestigious MFA, PhD, or JD program; whether you want to add to your teaching credentials; or whether you just love literature and want to continue to grow as a writer and thinker.
Our curriculum enables you to personalize your degree: students may pursue a concentration “spoke” in creative writing, writing, or literary studies in addition to a foundational “hub” of courses that teach advanced research, British and American literature, and critical theory. Choose from our courses in Literary Editing and Publishing, Digital Humanities, and innovative approaches to all the major fields of Anglophone literature.
For creative writers, we offer a bridge to the New York City literary scene; we consistently place students in prestigious internships at venues such as One Story; and we place our graduates in top MFA programs with funding.
