M.A. in Literature

The M.A. in Literature program seeks to provide students with the interpretive skills necessary to understand their own and other cultures through a study of literature.  It provides students with advanced preparation for a wide range of careers in which research and writing are important, including teaching, publishing, advertising and public relations.  Many students go on to enter doctoral programs or to teach English at secondary schools and junior colleges.

The Literature curriculum includes period courses in American, British, and World Literature genres, literary theory courses, and interdisciplinary and special topics courses such as Early Science Fiction, The School Story or Theories of Memory.
