The English program of The University of Maine is ideal for students who want a challenging and supportive learning environment in which to enhance their knowledge, explore new ideas, and gain experience in research, writing, and teaching.
Our degree culminates with a professional portfolio our graduates use to advance their goals toward PhD or MFA programs, teaching careers, employment in the private or public-sector, or personal growth.
Our graduate students are central actors in our intellectual community: they serve on committees, organize events, participate in research expos, and have their own symposium. Students can also apply for a third year of funding through our competitive Ulrich Wicks Distinguished Teaching Assistantship. Our program offers a professionalizing environment in which to enhance your knowledge, explore new ideas, and gain experience while continuing to do what you love: read, write, and think critically.
