The MA degree in English offered by the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences is a comprehensive program that delves into the many facets of English: its literatures; its linguistic, social and cultural histories; and its capacities for persuasion, exposition and elucidation.

The program allows students to explore specific subject areas while working across a range of subdisciplines within English such as literary studies, rhetorical studies, composition and linguistics.

With an emphasis on teaching and research, the program includes electives to encourage students to pursue interdisciplinary inquiry and the culminating experience primes graduates for critical and eloquent engagement with the world beyond the university.

Equally suited to prepare candidates for doctoral study or to advance the careers of area educators in the language arts, the degree also prepares graduates to begin careers in one of the many professions that value creativity, critical thinking and highly skilled communication.
