Master of Arts Degree Programs

Major in English

Students interested in this program must submit a completed Application for Admission to Graduate Study and should contact the Department of Languages and Literatures for other admission requirements. Graduate information and application for graduate admission can be found at www.grad.uni.edu/admission.

The Graduate Record Examination (General Test) is not required for admission to the program.

Only graduate courses (course numbers 5000 or above) will apply to a graduate degree, even if the undergraduate course number (4999 or less) is listed. No exceptions will be made.

This major in English is available on the thesis and non-thesis options, and degree applicants choose one of three emphases (see below). Both the thesis and the non-thesis options require a minimum of 30-36 semester hours, depending on the emphasis chosen. A minimum of 15 hours of 200/6000-level course work is required for each option.

The three emphases are the following:

  1. Literature Emphasis, minimum 30 semester hours - available on both thesis and non-thesis options;
  2. English Studies Emphasis, minimum 30 semester hours - available on both thesis and non-thesis options; and
  3. Creative Writing Emphasis, minimum 36 semester hours - available on thesis option only.

Graduate students are required to meet with the English Graduate Coordinator each semester for planning and approval of the courses within one's Program of Study. The department may require an applicant to complete course work in addition to the minimum hours specified for the selected option and emphasis. More information about this program approval process is available from the English Graduate Coordinator.

Successful completion of a final written and oral comprehensive examination is required for both the thesis and non-thesis options. In addition, students pursuing the non-thesis option are required to submit a Graduate Student Portfolio and complete an approved research paper. See the English Graduate Coordinator for details.

Native speakers of English must demonstrate proficiency in another language by earning at least a C grade in a second-semester, college-level course or by passing a specially designed examination. Course work taken to satisfy this foreign language requirement does not count toward the number of hours required for completion of the degree major.

For full admission, non-native English speakers must have achieved a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of 600 (paper-based)/250 (computer-based), or the equivalent, in order to demonstrate their proficiency in English. A student may be required to take additional English language improvement courses at the discretion of the English Graduate Faculty. Work taken to satisfy the language proficiency requirement does not count toward the minimum of 30 to 36 semester hours required to complete the selected emphasis.

Individuals teaching in Iowa community colleges are not required to hold state issued teaching licenses. However, graduate course work in postsecondary education may strengthen one’s qualifications for teaching at a community college. Contact individual colleges to determine the requirements for teaching appointments at each institution.

Literature Emphasis: Available on both the thesis and non-thesis options.
