The Master’s in English program at UCA boasts stellar faculty, three tracks for completing the degree, unique opportunities beyond the classroom (graduate assistantships, internships, etc.), and a small program with a high faculty-to-student ratio.
The MA in English is designed to do the following:
- teach and have students retain knowledge about the periods, authors, genres, and critical theory germane to the study of English and American literature and about the English language on a level befitting graduate-level study; in the case of the Medieval/Renaissance option, retain knowledge about the early periods of English literature in the context of English and American literature as a whole, focusing on authors, genres, and critical theory germane to the study of English literature on a level befitting graduate-level study.
- teach students to conduct and present graduate-level research, including the discovery, evaluation, integration, and documentation of primary and secondary sources.
- teach students to read closely and to think critically about literary works in order to form a thorough understanding of those works, their complexities, and how they fit into the larger scope of English and American literature.
- teach students to compose graduate quality writing that presents arguments in clear, mechanically sound prose and supports those arguments with evidence drawn from primary and secondary sources.
