Whether you’re a lifelong reader, a budding novelist, a current or aspiring English teacher, or on the path to a Ph.D., our Master’s program in English offers you a chance to discover yourself in literature. An advanced degree in English enables you to sharpen your thinking and dialogue with the imaginative writing that informs our world. What makes our program stand out is our dedicated faculty. We know better than anyone how literature shapes us, and we want to help you find—and follow—your own intellectual path.

You can earn a Master’s degree in English in one of three emphases: literature, creative writing, or postsecondary teaching. All our classes are offered in the evening and on-line through video conferencing so that you can earn your degree while you work, whether you are in Nashville or elsewhere. Our program is flexible so that you can fit your school into your life.

To learn more about our students, visit our English Department Blog or check out our annual English Graduate Newsletter, and be sure follow us on Facebook.
