Master of Arts in English

Students in classroom

Pursuing an M.A. in English prepares students for high-level careers in teaching, law, business, publishing, writing, and administration. Teachers with master's degrees often earn higher salaries than those with only bachelor's degrees. In Massachusetts, earning an M.A. is one of the requirements for moving from an initial license to a professional license. The M.A. also serves as excellent preparation for a Ph.D. program.

More information can be found on our prospective student page.

The deadline to apply to the M.A. program is February 1

Most of our master’s students receive generous scholarships in the form of merit- and need-based aid. Details can be found at the Graduate School Web site
