Graduate studies in English prepare you for careers in teaching, research, writing, editing, or further study at the doctoral level.

Whether you choose the Master of Arts in English, the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing and Media Arts, or the Interdisciplinary Doctorate of Philosophy, you will work closely with award-winning faculty to develop your own original research and writing. With courses in British and American literature, creative and expository writing, film, linguistics, composition and rhetoric, literary criticism, the history of books and print culture, and editing, you will complete your program with the ability to place your work in the larger context of literary studies.
