Master of Arts in English

Program Description

The Master of Arts in English is a 36-hour program, thesis or non-thesis track. For full admission to either track, students should have an undergraduate major in English and a minimum of fourteen undergraduate hours (or the equivalent) in one foreign language. Both degree tracks require students to complete English 598 (Methods of Bibliography and Research Analysis). Both tracks also require a written comprehensive examination.

The M.A. thesis track is designed for students who intend to pursue a PhD to teach at the college/university level and who intend to engage in scholarship beyond the M.A

The M.A. non-thesis track is designed primarily for students planning to continue their teaching careers at the secondary level.  Professional Educator English Program (PEEPs) is tailored to meet the special needs of those interested in earning a degree through distance learning, especially (but not limited to) Texas high school teachers who need to be qualified to teach dual credit English courses in their high schools.
