The MS English Program at Winona State University cultivates advanced-level critical thinking, reading, research and writing skills, and an in-depth knowledge of all major areas of literary studies, including the theory and practice of teaching literature and composition.
Students who select the Master’s thesis option may choose to write a scholarly thesis on a literary topic, a scholarly thesis on a linguistics or TESOL topic, or a creative thesis with a scholarly introduction. Descriptions of various types of theses may be found on the English Graduate Website, as may further information about the thesis prospectus, the thesis forms, and the typical thesis-writing schedule. Students who intend to write a Master’s thesis must secure a director, finish a prospectus, find two thesis readers, have the prospectus approved by the director and two readers, and submit to the Director of Graduate Studies in English the Prospectus Submission & Thesis Committee form before the summer between their first and second fulltime academic years.
