Master of Arts, English

Mission Statement
The Master of Arts in English at Marygrove College offers students opportunities for advanced study in literature, writing, and the teaching of English. By emphasizing teaching potentials for literature and writing, the program serves the needs of those teaching or seeking to teach in community colleges or high schools. However, its rigorous examination of multiple critical approaches offers ample preparation for students planning to pursue a doctoral degree.

General Information
The Master of Arts in English is designed to provide both theoretical and practical foundations for teaching English in community colleges or high schools. It is a 33 credit hour program whose courses are usually offered in the evening and on weekends. Two required core courses will give a solid base for graduate English studies, while advanced seminars will offer rigorous opportunities to explore various disciplinary topics in depth. And the flexibly conceived Masters Project (prepared by a Directed Reading course) will provide an opportunity for students to further explore their topic of interest in literary works or in teaching composition.
