Graduate Degrees

Graduate programs in English

Pursuing a graduate degree in English allows students to explore the intricacies of language, literature, theory and culture at the highest level.

No matter which emphasis you choose, you can expect to find qualified and caring mentors within the English Department faculty. These professors are experts in topics such as rhetoric, composition theory, British literature, American literature, sociolinguistics, cultural studies, digital media, gender studies and public engagement. Our program is small and intimate enough that students enjoy a sense of community and benefit from close faculty mentoring. Faculty members take their roles as mentors very seriously, giving students the careful attention that helps them define and achieve their professional goals.
