Program Overview

The Master of Arts in English and Writing Studies is designed for students interested in pursuing advanced studies in the related fields of applied linguistics and teaching English as a second language, literature, composition and rhetoric, as well as English pedagogy and public and professional writing.

With its firm grounding in theory, research, and pedagogy, the M.A. in English and Writing Studies prepares students to excel as scholars, as writers, and as teachers of writing, literature, and English as a second language. The mission of the graduate program is to engage students in an exploration of how written and spoken texts work rhetorically and stylistically, as well as how historical, cultural, and social conditions affect the ways in which speakers, writers, and readers construct meaning. In addition, the program provides students with a strong foundation for pursuing a Ph.D. degree. The M.A. enables students, whatever their career path, to become socially committed, rhetorically flexible scholars, teachers and writers, well-prepared to make significant contributions in their chosen fields and communities, both local and global.  

The Graduate Committee, under the leadership of the graduate coordinators, has general supervision of the program and the work of students. Students are required to consult regularly with the graduate coordinators for advising. Petitions for waiver of requirements must be approved by the graduate coordinators and the Dean of Graduate Studies when appropriate.
