Students seeking a master’s degree in English may choose either a 30-semester hour program that includes a thesis (ENG 518 Thesis counting for 6 semester hours) or a 36-semester hour program that includes an independent research project (ENG 595 Research Lit/Techniques Non-Thesis counting for 3 semester hours). 

About

All master’s students should consult with the Director of English Graduate Studies about which program would be most relevant to their future plans. 

Programme Structure

Most coursework for both 30 and 36 semester hour programs is elective, but students will want to select courses that reflect their interests and future needs and that will prepare them to write a final project (ENG 595 Research Lit/Techniques or ENG 518 Thesis ). Final projects may be written on literature, composition, linguistics, children’s literature, or some combination thereof. With agreement of the student’s committee, the project also may focus on creative writing by the student.
