English MA Degree

What is PEEPs?

PEEPs is offered through the Tarleton State University Department of English and Languages, 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, in response to Texas State House Bill 1 (which requires that 12 hours of dual credit be offered to high school students).

PEEPs is a non-thesis option Master of Arts degree plan that
  • Works around students’ busy schedules
  • Provides teachers with the necessary credentials to teach dual credit courses
  • Bolsters teachers’ faculty development requirements
  • Provides the kind of training that will help boost TAKS scores

PEEPs is a program that is primarily online, this 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 or to teach as adjuncts or instructors at community colleges, and universities, or go on for PhD work.

PEEPs will offer at least 3 online hours per long semester and up to 9 online hours during the summer,so that completion of the degree is possible in two-four years, depending on your pace.
