About

Graduate studies in English at Acadia University is the next level, a continuation of academic exploration that will satisfy your desire to move beyond survey-level exposure and a basic acquisition of critical methods towards a growing expertise in the field of literary studies.

Overview

A master’s degree in English at Acadia University will allow you to achieve a more sophisticated understanding of the power, place, and purpose of literary expression throughout cultural history. It is an essential next step towards doctoral work and a potential academic career, but stands on its own as an achievement that signifies your mastery of a particular field of literary studies while also extending your professional skills and enabling additional career opportunities outside of academia.

The small scale of Acadia’s campus means that you’re never just a student number or a face in the crowd. As a master's level English student, you’re apt to feel more like a colleague. Our small graduate program means that you will receive unmatched levels of engagement, mentorship and support from professors and other students during your 12-month master’s-level experience. 

Learning outcomes

Acadia University professors are active researchers and writers in a broad range of fields and will work to ensure that your thesis (on a topic of your own choosing) and coursework contribute to your growth as a scholar, researcher and critical thinker.
