English - 5-Year Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in English

The Department of English offers a five-year combined degree program that provides the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Master of Arts in English. 

In this program, the undergraduate degree requirements are slightly modified to require more theory and methods courses in an effort to prepare students for the more rigorous masters-level coursework.

At the completion of the degree, students are well-prepared to apply for doctoral programs in English and related humanities, positions teaching composition, and editorial and other writing-centered employment.

Students interested in this program will apply during the fall of their junior year and, if admitted, begin taking masters-level courses in the fall of their senior year with an undergraduate classification.
