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.
