MA in English in Literary and Cultural Studies

The M.A. in English in Literary and Cultural Studies is professional in nature, primarily designed as a terminal degree to prepare students for a variety of professional careers. This curriculum will prepare graduates for careers teaching in private and charter schools, as well as for careers in civil service, theatre, journalism, public relations, law, and numerous other professions requiring critical thinking and communication skills. For those students who may decide to pursue doctoral degrees, the gateway course and the four “readings” courses will extend students’ undergraduate preparation in these areas, while the four electives will provide excellent preparation for studies in writing and rhetoric, language studies, the use of media and technology, cultural studies, theatre arts, and the interdisciplinary research skills needed to succeed in doctoral-level courses as well as to write most doctoral dissertations.
