This combined program enables students to efficiently complete both the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in English and the Master of Arts in English degrees in five years.

At the completion of the program, you will be well-prepared to apply for:

  • Doctoral programs in English and related humanities
  • Positions teaching composition
  • Editorial and other writing-centered employment
