M.A. in English Program
Grand Valley State University
Course Offerings and Descriptions for Spring, Summer, Fall 2014, and Winter 2015 now available!
Registration is open.
The Master of Arts (M.A.) in English offers students and professionals an opportunity to deepen literary knowledge, sharpen critical skills, and strengthen expository writing by studying a diverse range of literatures in English.
The program meets the needs of those who wish to pursue a Ph.D. in literature, teachers who want to strengthen their content expertise, and working professionals who hope to enhance their communication and analytical skills.
Students choose from two degree tracks -- 33 hours of course work followed by qualifying examinations, or 27 hours of course work followed by a 6-credit-hour thesis project. To meet the needs of our mostly part-time students, all courses are offered in the late afternoon and evenings. See degree requirements.
