Why the Department of English?
The Department offers the M.A., the M.F.A. in poetry or fiction, and the Ph.D. with concentrations in literary studies, rhetoric and composition, and creative writing. The Department also actively supports the Graduate English Association’s goals to assist graduate students by providing helpful teaching resources, professional development tips, and a sense of community.
How to Apply
When applying to our graduate programs, you will be submitting all the documentation to the Graduate Office; the Department does not gather any paperwork, so please do not send any documents to the department, as they will not be processed.
Nobody likes to wait, but unfortunately this is your next step. You will eventually be notified regarding your acceptance, but you can always check your application’s status online.
Accept Our Offer
If you are accepted by the department, you will need to accept the offer and then make plans to join us downtown. The department should be in contact with you with updates on the start of the semester and what you need to do next.
