Whether you want to take a course or two to reignite your passion, earn the 18 hours typically necessary for dual credit teaching, or increase your salary and improve your credentials, our master's degree is uniquely positioned to help you meet your goals.
Unlike many programs, the English program of Texas Woman's University offers the flexibility of both online and traditional face-to-face classes so that you can choose a format that suits your lifestyle. Our on-campus courses run in three-hour blocks during the late afternoon and evening, perfect for working professionals. All classes are taught by faculty members who know your name and are invested in your education. Hallmarks of our program include flexibility in scheduling, a variety of degree options, high-quality curriculum, small class sizes and superior mentoring.
We also collaborate closely with the Multicultural Gender and Women's Studies Department at TWU and offer a number of cross-listed courses. As a result, we often share students. Gender and Women's Studies students may also earn an M.A. in English, while our M.A students can earn credit toward their degrees or toward the Graduate Certificate in Multicultural Gender and Women's Studies.
Our M.A. in English will prepare you for a career in education, writing, editing, journalism or communications. It will also provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary for you to pursue further graduate studies.
