Literature

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Literature refers to creative written works in categories such as poetry, novels and fiction to name a few. A literature program may allow students to explore different literature types. A student may choose to specialize in an area such as British literature or drama, or example.

Across the Atlantic, the discussion about online courses and their potential to restructure higher education has been raging for some time. Courses are structured as weekly online conferences; communication with the course tutor and other learners takes place in a virtual learning environment. The online courses are intended to fit around your calendar; you access the course whenever it is suitable for you.

Master of Humanities English

A rationale for an English concentration is almost self-evident.  Students have requested the concentration and many from this program have applied to adjunct positions in English only to be told that they need 18 hours or a degree or concentration in the field.

The Master of  Humanities program already has a variety of English courses.  Any 18 hours in English, with the exception of ENG501, will count toward the concentration.  Since Film/Cinema Studies uses literary theory in analysis, courses in Film (CUL530, Cult and Independent Films and CUL532, Documentary Films), can also be applied to the concentration.  The British History sequence gives a basis for the development of English language, literature, and ideas....
