2021-2022 Undergraduate Catalog

Accelerated MA in English

For admission consideration, students must submit a graduate program application packet. The application process is selective; only students with an outstanding record and strong recommendations will be considered. If admitted, students will complete a 30-hour graduate degree plan. Students will complete up to 12 hours of graduate coursework (four graduate courses) during the last year of undergraduate study. Those 12 hours may also fulfill requirements for the BA in English or writing. Candidates must work with the graduate adviser to determine how the courses will apply to the MA degree.

At the end of a student’s fourth year, assuming all other graduation requirements are met, the student earns the baccalaureate degree (in English or writing).  During the fifth year, students must take an additional 18 hours to complete the Accelerated MA in English degree including 6 thesis hours.
