MA English/Professional Educator English Program

Program Summary

Tarleton State University is now offering an on-line Master’s degree in English in addition to the traditional classroom option.  Our Professional Educator English Preparation (PEEPs) track offers an opportunity for our graduate students to work toward a master’s degree that will provide them with the skills and background to teach dual-credit courses and to teach as an adjunct or even an instructor at community colleges, junior colleges, and universities, or go on for PhD work. We also offer course work in professional writing enabling our graduates to enter the growing and lucrative technical writing and editing field, as well as careers in journalism, educational administration and services, and many areas of business that demand writing, critical thinking, and communication skills.  Our graduate students have the freedom to do a completely online degree or mix online courses with face to face or hybrid format selections at our main campus in Stephenville or at our satellites in Fort Worth and Waco.
