For the Master of Arts in English, a student will select, in consultation with the Graduate Coordinator, a total of 30 semester hours of graduate courses. The courses must be taken in the English department unless deemed appropriate by the Graduate Coordinator, and it is recommended that 6 of these hours be taken in graduate seminars (ENG 590 ). Additionally, the student must enroll in ENG 500 - Introduction to Graduate Studies  during the first Fall Semester of their graduate study. Any exception must be approved by the department. The remaining 6 hours of the degree are earned by a Master’s Thesis and are directed by the student’s chosen thesis adviser. At the end of the program, the student will present the thesis in a public defense before members of their advising committee and the department at large.
