Program description

M.A. in English Literature

The Department of Foreign Literatures and Linguistics offers two Programs: an MA in English Literature and an MA in Linguistics.

Both the English Literature and the Linguistics MA Programs offer either a thesis (research) track or a non-thesis (general) track. Both are two-year Programs. All tracks have three objectives:

  • to expose students to current research topics in the field;
  • to engage students in academic discourse, research methodologies and critical reasoning;
  • to train students in academic writing and usage of professional literature.

All tracks are designed to take two years. Additionally, the goal of the thesis track is that students conduct original research and contribute to scientific knowledge.

Admission requirements

Applicants must have completed a BA in English/Comparative Literature with a grade point average of 85 or above (for the thesis track) or 80 and above (for the non-thesis track) from an accredited institution.

Applicants who do not have the requisite background in literature will be required to complete a range of BA courses before they can be admitted as full-time MA students.

The graduate committee decides on a case-by-case basis which courses these students must complete.
