Graduate English Program Mission Statement
Graduate study in English leads to the Master of Arts degree. Courses enhance students’ ability to critically interpret culturally diverse texts and to demonstrate sophisticated knowledge of theoretical approaches to language, literature, and composition. Students are trained in scholarly research to analyze texts in their historical, social, and cultural contexts. In addition to providing opportunities for personal, intellectual enrichment, the graduate program prepares students who aspire to teach at the advanced secondary and college levels, pursue a Ph.D., or work in careers outside of the academy.
Graduate English Program Learning Outcomes:
1: Students will demonstrate understanding of the major periods in the history of British and American literatures.
2: Students will demonstrate understanding of written texts from major periods in the history of British and American literatures, including the similarities and differences among literatures.

5: Students will express ideas completely and precisely, writing advanced research papers and critical analyses on language, literature, or pedagogy.
