MA./Ph.D., Ph.D. in English
The English department serves the interests of students who plan to become teachers or writers of literature, as well as those preparing for other professions that put a high premium on cultural analysis, effective writing, symbolic interpretation, or media studies. The program is not designed to grant a terminal M.A. degree. Instead, it is expected that students will proceed beyond the M.A. degree to Ph.D. study.
The application deadline for fall enrollment is January 15.
GRE General and Subject Test scores and writing sample required.
