A Master of Arts degree in English meets today’s global challenges by equipping graduates with a range of professional options, including: teaching college English or English as a second language, technical and professional writing, work in the non-profit sector, and doctoral study leading to the Ph.D. degree. 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.
