About

The Online M.A. in English from Ohio University is designed for secondary teachers who want to teach dual enrollment college-level courses, including Ohio teachers who want to teach in Ohio's College Credit Plus program. 

Overview

Program Overview

  • The Online M.A. in English from Ohio University's primary aim is for students to have a thorough grounding in the basic elements of literary study; therefore all students must satisfy a common set of core requirements. To provide students with additional exposure to graduate level English studies, students will also take at least one non-literature course in the program (e.g., creative writing, composition and rhetoric, advanced pedagogy). 
  • The main concentration of the program is Literary History, and the online M.A. meets the same requirements as the on-ground M.A. program offered in the English Department at Ohio University. The concentration in literary history covers a diverse array of literary periods, national literatures, and genres. All courses involve students in writing and research.

Opportunities for Graduates

  • Students in the online M.A. program in English improve their content and skill mastery in ways that will make them stronger high school English teachers well suited for teaching college preparatory, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate English classes. They also prepare themselves to teach entry-level college English courses through dual-enrollment programs such as Ohio’s College Credit Plus initiative.
