EIU Master of Arts in English

The MA program in English offers you the opportunity to work closely with publishing scholars in the field of your choice. Small classes with vibrant, engaged faculty challenge and inspire you to pursue your interests and prepare for a career or further study. Our two-year program offers concentrations in literary studies, literary studies with creative writing emphasis, professional writing, and rhetoric and composition.

In addition:

  • Graduate assistantships offer funding and valuable teaching experience.
  • Internships, independent studies, and one-on-one mentoring ensure that every student emerges ready for a profession or further study.
  • Workshops provide practical advice on prospectus- and thesis-writing, submitting to conferences, applying to PhD programs, job hunting, and teaching at the two-year college.

Watch our graduate faculty discuss their research on the English Department's YouTube channel.
