The Master of Arts in English at MSU offers students a comprehensive overview of advanced literary study as well as courses in creative and technical writing and linguistics. The 33-hour program offers both thesis and non-thesis options as well as a full array of Internet courses in all the major areas of English Studies.
Morehead is one of the few accredited schools in the nation to offer a Master’s degree in English completely online, and it is the first in the region to fully support a virtual learning environment. Students who pursue their degree at Morehead State are offered both the flexibility of a self-paced distance learning program that is based on an adult model of education and the dynamic interaction between people in a traditional classroom setting.
As a regional institution serving a geographically isolated region, MSU has long made an investment in various forms of distance learning and currently offers a number of programs, including the Master of Arts in English, entirely online. Like our traditional program, the online program offers students a solid background in English language and literature, and it includes thesis and non-thesis options. The only difference between the degrees lies in method of delivery. Students who take courses online are offered the flexibility of a virtual environment. A student in the online program may include some face-to-face classes when feasible.
The department maintains a graduate English faculty of 16, holding terminal degrees from a number of leading universities throughout the country. The size of the program assures careful, personal attention to student progress toward the M.A. degree and into a job search or post-graduate work upon completion of the program.
