Master of Arts in Literature's of Modernity

Located in Toronto’s vibrant core, this one-year English MA affords students diverse learning opportunities. 

Innovative courses investigate modernity in literature from cultural, historical, and global settings. 

Students can pursue a major research paper, work as a teaching or research assistant, and complete a placement at a literary or cultural institution. 

MA students develop enhanced skills in communication and critical thinking that have proven highly useful in many professions. 

In addition, this program fosters a rich understanding of ourselves as engaged, responsible citizens in our society and in the world. 

These qualities have helped those of our students who have chosen to pursue further education or to work in the private sector.

The practicum allows a student to apply theoretical and scholarly knowledge to a practical experience at an institution such as a literary magazine, an agency, a press, or an organization invested in literature or other aspects of culture. 

Placements are for 115 hours and take place in May, with some projects extending into June, pending the scheduling of the host institution. 

To fulfill the requirements of a practicum, a student must complete a placement, attend a set of mandatory seminars related to professional development, and submit a formal report (30-40 pages). 

With the MRP, a student researches and writes a scholarly paper of 35 to 40 pages under the supervision of a faculty member. 

The MRP is expected to be a sustained exploration of a clearly defined set of theoretically engaged issues. 

With the help of a supervisor, the student will ensure the MRP involves an original argument, solid research, a critical review of literature in the field, and a synthesis of different points of view. The final paper is assessed by the supervisor and a second reader.
