About

The Department of English Language and Literatures offers a flexible M.A. English program from Wright State University designed to meet various needs, including those of prospective or practicing high school or college English teachers, ESL specialists, professional writers, and predoctoral students. 

Overview

The English program from Wright State University is structured around work in language, literature, and writing. Courses are regularly available in the standard areas of literature, linguistics, composition/rhetoric, professional writing, and gender studies, as well as in nontraditional and interdisciplinary studies.

Elective options allow students to design programs to meet their educational goals. In addition to the course and thesis options, special options allow students to combine courses in literature or language with work in creative writing, professional writing, technical writing, women’s studies, or the teaching of writing and literature, among other options. 

The program in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), which includes linguistics and prepares students to teach English to nonnative speakers, may be pursued as an elective option, as an endorsement for certified public school teachers, or as a concentration in itself. Details about the different offerings in the TESOL program are available in the departmental office. Interdisciplinary options allow work in programs such as reading, communications, religion studies, or history. 

By offering on-the-job experience at appropriate sites, internships within the various options prepare students for professional writing careers, for college teaching, or for positions in special collections, archives, and private and rare book libraries. Full-time or part-time study is possible.
