The English Department also offers degrees other than the M.A. in English. These degrees are the Master of Arts in Technical Communication, the Master of Arts in Teaching English Language Arts, and the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. If you are interested in these degrees, please visit their websites, as they are separate entities from the M.A. in English program.
