The English Department offers the Master of Arts degree , as well as courses for the Language-Arts concentration in the M.Ed. in Secondary Education. In reviewing applicants, the Department’s Graduate Committee seeks to identify students who will be fully engaged in the program and who will contribute actively to the scholarly and creative efforts of the Department and the discipline. In addition to meeting the University’s minimum standards for enrollment in the graduate program (GPA and GRE or MAT scores), the top applicants will hold a B.A. in English (or equivalent credit hours) and will submit two satisfactory letters of reference from current or past professors (or others familiar with the applicant’s scholarly potential) and a thoughtful cover letter (addressed to the Graduate Coordinator) outlining their reasons for pursuing the M.A. in English. Applicants must also submit a writing sample. The Graduate Committee will carefully consider all information when making its decision
