The M.A. in English & Writing Studies offers a strong foundation in English studies with our concentrations in Applied Linguistics/TESL, Composition & Rhetoric, and Literature.

We take a holistic approach to our admissions process for the M.A. in English & Writing Studies. Your undergraduate GPA or standardized test scores do not define you and will not exclude you from consideration for our program. In fact, we do not use GRE scores in our admissions process. Instead, we consider a broad range of candidate qualities, including your personal attributes, past experiences, and future goals, and how those fit with our program and its values and objectives.
