The Master of Arts program in English provides students with graduate education in the study of English, American and world literatures, language and cultures. The program offers students a broad knowledge of content in the discipline and helps them develop advanced proficiency in reading, writing, analysis and research skills, and teaching.

Effective communicators are in high demand by employers, as are credentialed writing instructors to teach at the college level. The Rhetoric and Composition Graduate Certificate prepares students to teach composition and rhetoric courses in community colleges and university writing programs. Many certificate graduates continue their rhetoric and composition education in doctoral programs.
