College of Arts and Sciences
M.A. - English
Graduate study in the Department of English presents an opportunity for you to work with a dedicated and gifted faculty in small classes and to receive a noteworthy level of personal attention. It's not unusual for our graduate students to present papers at regional and national scholarly meetings, even international ones, or to submit manuscripts and creative work for publication. The close faculty-student mentoring relationships that our small class sizes allow enables our graduate students to develop their critical, creative, and professional skills to an extent many larger programs cannot match.
Each member of the graduate faculty holds a Ph.D. and is an active scholar in his or her field; the Department also includes widely-published novelists and poets. In recent years we have hosted a number of important conferences, and several scholarly journals have been founded or published here. At the same time, Winthrop is primarily a teaching institution, and the Department of English is committed to teaching excellence. We note that five of our members have won prestigious teaching awards and that teaching is at the center of every faculty member's work.
