M.A. in Writing Studies

The M.A. in English with a Concentration in Writing Studies introduces students to theoretical concepts, pedagogical activities, and research methods commonly used in various fields of writing studies, including Rhetoric and Composition and English as a Second Language. This M.A. degree is designed to help graduate students 1) start a career as a college writing instructor; 2) transition into a Ph.D. program in a writing-related area; and/or 3) acquire additional skills to complement current teaching, business, or various workplace situations.

Graduate classes are small and opportunities for multi-disciplinary work and independent study are available. Our faculty are experienced in multiple areas of writing studies, including writing theory and pedagogy, English as a Second Language, writing in multimedia environments, business and technical writing, and the study of rhetoric. In addition, as part of the degree, students will have the opportunity to enroll in a select number of courses in the study of literature. The program advisor will work with all students on selecting the best classes during their time in the program.
