About

The Master of Arts in English at the Montana State University focuses on writing, teaching, and literary studies. 

Overview

The Master of Arts in English at the Montana State University: English Education Option (MAE:EE) more heavily focuses on pedagogical content knowledge and offers English language arts and literacy teachers opportunities to innovate their classrooms and be leaders in the field.

Key Features 

  • Across both aspects of the MA in English, serious intellectual work takes place in the landscape of the Northern Rocky Mountains and Yellowstone region. 
  • Students develop close mentoring relationships with faculty members who have expertise in fields such as Writing Studies, education and pedagogy, British literature, and the literature of the American West. 

Programme Structure

  • The literature courses in the MA focus on how writing is born from, intersects with, and creates landscapes. Our graduate classes cover a range of literature from different countries of origin and time periods, but always with a focus on the vital role of space. Such inquiry considers the iconic terrain of the American West, the battlefields of Europe, and other settings both rural and urban. 
  • The Master of Arts degree requires 30 credits. Students may elect to write either a scholarly thesis (Plan A) or a professional paper (Plan B). Plan A entails 20 hours of course work and 10 hours of thesis. Plan B involves 24 hours of course work and 6 hours of professional paper.
