ENGL 8998 - M.A. Thesis

M.A. students in English may choose to write a substantial thesis directed by a faculty member. Students opting for a thesis should draw up a proposal and secure a director to supervise the project. Students choose between a critical thesis of 10,000-15,000 words and a pedagogical thesis (described on our website). Students enroll in this three-credit course for a single semester, either fall or spring; it is not available during the summer.
