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 or online so that you can earn your degree while you work. And our program is flexible so that you can fit your school into your life.

  “Having faculty who challenged me academically but also cared about me as a person made all of the difference.
-Nicole Phillips, class of 2015
