MS in English

The Master of Arts in English provides courses in literature, linguistics, and composition. The MA program welcomes ArkLaTex’s brightest students and professionals from the realms of English education, communication, writing, and management. Should you choose to embark upon an English MA with Texas A&M-Texarkana, the dedicated faculty will help you find and develop your passion for English language and literature, as well as help you construct a meaningful future. MA student graduates have gone on to top tier PhD schools, became nationally celebrated teaching professionals, and published in popular venues such as 4-States Magazine, Her, and TXK Today, as well as making names for themselves in scholarly venues, such as The Sigma Tau Delta Review, and conferences. Some on-campus jobs are available to defray enrollment costs.

The MA degree requires Research Literature and Techniques and 24 semester credit hours in English, at least half of which must be in literature courses. Additionally, you may choose to do either a Thesis or the capstone course, Current Issues in English Studies. In the capstone course, you write and formally present two major papers. If you choose this non-thesis option, six semester credit hours in approved electives are required, while if you choose the thesis option, only an additional three semester credit hours in an approved elective are required.
