The Literary, Cultural and Textual Studies track in the Master of Arts in English program prepares students for both academic and nonacademic careers.
The program encourages students to make connections among texts (critical, theoretical, scholarly, literary, etc.), to engage in research and critical thinking at an advanced level, and to write scholarship of merit and distinction.
Each student must complete at least 33 credit hours, including three core courses. Near the end of the degree program, each candidate must complete a Capstone Course and choose either the thesis option or the nonthesis option, which requires 3 additional credit hours of a 6000-level Literary, Cultural and Textual Studies course.
The program teaches research methods in one or more courses and requires a research study and final report focusing on literary criticism in a student's particular specialization.
