Overview

Master of Art in English

The Department of English provides graduate training in literary studies towards M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. Nearly 30 faculty supervise graduate work in a variety of areas: American, Canadian, Decolonizing, Digital Humanities, Aboriginal, Literature by Women, Theory, Medieval, Renaissance, Restoration/Eighteenth Century, Nineteenth Century, Modern British, and Cultural and Media Studies.

The MA program offers either a thesis-based or a project-based option, requiring students to do course work and fulfil a language requirement (for the thesis option), and to complete and be examined on a thesis or a project. The Ph.D. program requires students to do course work, fulfil a language requirement, pass a Field Exam, and to propose, complete and be examined on a dissertation. The MA program is normally one to two years of work.

Project Program: (12-month)

Thesis Program: (24-month)
