General requirements

Applicants to the M.A. in English program must hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher education. In general, students who have completed a substantial number of credits in English at the undergraduate level will receive preference for admission to the program; however, the M.A. in English program welcomes applicants from diverse educational backgrounds. Applicants with other undergraduate concentrations or majors will be considered. In all cases, a record of strong undergraduate academic achievement will merit preference over any other criterion for admission.

Prospective students for the Literature Option must include the following in their application:

  • a 500-word statement of purpose explaining why they want to pursue graduate studies in English
  • a writing sample, i.e., a substantial research essay on a literary topic (approximately 10 pages, typed, double-spaced, printed on 8-1/2-by-11 white bond paper).
