MA in English

If you are looking for quality supervision, a small-class environment, and scholarly interaction with peers and faculty, then our Department is your place of choice.

The Department of English and Theatre offers a twelve-month, full-time program leading to the Master’s degree in English literature. Participating in small seminar classes, students have the opportunity to broaden their understanding of the discipline and to write a thesis based on their area of interest.

Where possible, students are also offered the opportunity to gain teaching experience. Whether you are interested in pursuing an MA program as a step towards doctoral studies or towards a professional degree, you will feel supported in your decision to apply for the program. In making a thesis a major component of the MA program, the Department offers you training in writing that will be key to doctoral studies, and that will equally help you acquire skills of self-discipline and time management essential to any profession.
