Home » Master of Arts Degree in English
The online MA in English is a 30 hour program (24 hours Coursework plus 6 for the thesis). Unlike the traditional program, the on-line program does not have specific tracks (concentrations). Students interested in concentrating on a specific area of study should apply to the traditional program.
In addition to English 5800 (Bib and Research Methods), students enrolled in the online MA must take six hours from British or American literature courses, six hours of writing or linguistics, and six hours of folklife/southern culture courses. The remaining hours may come from any course offered in English at the graduate level. After coursework, students will write a thesis or produce 2 papers-in-lieu of thesis and take a comprehensive exam.
