Overview

Master of Arts - English

The Department of English at McGill is unique, in that its program brings together three different but related areas of study: Literature; Drama and Theatre; and Cultural Studies.

Graduate students, key participants in all areas of Department life, have the opportunity to explore aspects of Literature, Cultural Studies, Performance, and Theatre History in their seminar work and research. 

The Department is home to—or is a principal participant in—a number of major collaborative research projects, including:

the Burney Centre, the McGill Medievalists, the Bibliographic Society of Canada, and research teams on Shakespeare and Performance, Early Modern Conversions, Interacting with Print, Eating in Canada, and Novelists on the Novel. 

These research groups and projects are the most visible signs of cross-fertilization among the three areas of the Department's work and of the Department's prominence in the development of interdisciplinary research and teaching at McGill and in the academy in general.

In the non-thesis option, students must successfully complete Graduate Research Seminar and seven seminars, and write a research paper of 40 pages. 

Students submit a proposal for the research paper to the Graduate Administration Committee in the Department; the proposal must be approved before students begin to write the research paper. 

The finished paper is evaluated by the supervisor and a second member of the Department. 

Although the Non-Thesis (research paper) M.A. is designed to be completed in two years, some students complete the program in one year (Fall, Winter, and Summer terms) or in 16 months (Fall, Winter, Summer, and Fall terms).
