About

Overview

The English Department maintains four degree-granting graduate programs:

  • Literature (MA and PhD) 
  • Creative Writing (MFA) 
  • Rhetoric, Composition, and the Teaching of English, known as RCTE (MA and PhD) 
  • English Applied Linguistics, known as EAL (MA in TESL, with ties to the PhD in SLAT)

English As A Second Language degree offered by The University of Arizona is separately administered and has a separate application procedure. In general (some programs may make exceptions or have a different deadline) applications are due in early January (for matriculation the following August). 

Admissions are highly selective

The department therefore urges prospective applicants to confer, by early autumn at the latest, with the Director of the individual program in which they are interested.
