Online Master of Arts in English Curriculum Expands Language and Literary Knowledge
The online Master of Arts in English curriculum focuses on the study of traditional and nontraditional literature and is designed to strengthen your skills in the critical analysis of literature. If you have an undergraduate degree in English or literature, you will explore English language and literary theory at a deeper level. If you have an undergraduate degree in another area, your MA in English degree curriculum may vary slightly but will still include the same number of credits.
