Students pursuing Wright State's M.A. in English may choose from one of three concentrations: Literature, Rhetoric and Writing, or TESOL. All students in the graduate program complete 33 to 36 hours of graduate study and a graduate portfolio, which includes a targeted revision of a seminar paper. Several past graduates have published their final project papers in prominent scholarly journals.

Financial Aid is available. Eligible students should apply for both the Graduate Teaching Assistantship and the Graduate Tuition Scholarship.
