BYU’s English Master of Arts Program (MA)
The BYU Master of Arts in English is a two-year program including 26 hours of coursework and 6 hours of thesis writing. It is designed to prepare students for doctoral work or careers in teaching, writing, or editing. In contrast to Ph.D.-granting institutions, BYU’s English department devotes all of its graduate resources to its master’s-level students, combining a reasonable tuition with significant financial support. Although these paid positions are not guaranteed, most graduate students avail themselves of opportunities as composition instructors, teaching assistants, and research assistants. Our graduate faculty members provide a well-rounded course of study with emphases in American literature, British literature, English teaching, or Rhetoric and Composition. The program has a strong record of placement in Ph.D. programs for those students choosing to continue their graduate studies and also provides a valuable intellectual foundation for students pursuing writing, publishing, teaching, law, and other related careers.
