The English Education MA program offered at Arizona State University is a one-year intensive program designed to prepare inservice teachers for careers as exemplary educators and leaders in English language arts instruction.


Students in the English Education MA program offered at Arizona State University develop a deeper understanding of language arts by learning how to access, analyze, and apply theoretical frames and best practices for teaching students in grades 7-12. The program encourages students to employ academic research and inquiry to address questions they have about their own students’ learning. Designed for practicing teachers who want to continue to teach full-time while furthering their education, this dynamic course of study culminates with an applied project that directly impacts instruction in language arts classrooms.

The MA in English education is the only one of its kind in the state of Arizona. The program offers an intellectual cohort of English language arts teachers who share their teaching practices and teacher inquiry work and apply their learning and leadership in their classrooms, schools, and districts. The program’s alumni are equally impressive and have become teacher-leaders throughout Arizona, have presented their work at local and national conferences, and have become active in the National Writing Project and the National Council of Teachers of English.
