The Master’s in English program at UCA boasts stellar faculty, three tracks for completing the degree, unique opportunities beyond the classroom (graduate assistantships, internships, etc.), and a small program with a high faculty-to-student ratio. We love what we do and are excited to work with graduate students.

Graduate Assistantships, Internships, and Unique Learning Opportunities

Currently, we offer three department graduate assistantships each year, which provide valuable experience in the following venues: assisting with the production of the poetry journal, Slant; working with faculty on research projects; facilitating the activities of the undergraduate English Society; and coordinating the College of Liberal Arts Student Research Symposium. (Graduate assistantships come with a modest stipend—$9,333—paid over the course of nine months.) From time to time, we provide advanced students the opportunity to teach their own introductory literature course. (Graduate students who teach a course are paid $2,600 for the semester.) Along with assistantships and teaching opportunities, we also can help students secure internships. The department internship coordinator can work with graduate students individually to create unique learning opportunities for graduate credit to be earned while working within the community. Last, while assistantships and internships enrich graduate education, graduate coursework itself enables students to take advantage of resources within the state.... [-]

The Graduate Program in German is ideally positioned to respond to the challenges in the profession and to the changing role of the humanities. Many of our program features already reflect the recommendations of the recent MLA report on Doctoral Study, illustrating the forward-looking character of the Graduate Program in German.

Georgetown offers a rigorous academic program that responds to the broadening career goals of graduate students. We are committed to preparing MA students for the highest level of scholarship in research and teaching. Results of a recent graduate alumni survey confirm that the graduate program prepared them well for a range of career paths both in academia and in other professional contexts. For examples, please see our alumni profiles. Drawing on the broad range of expertise of the faculty at Georgetown, the graduate program provides an excellent foundation of German literature and culture from the 18th century to the present and fosters critical and interdisciplinary approaches to more specialized areas of inquiry, including: contemporary literature and culture, issues of gender and sexuality, intersections of religious and literary traditions, curriculum development, and literacy studies. All students, irrespective of their area of concentration, receive extensive preparation for teaching and are involved in various aspects of curriculum development and assessment. We consider these aspects to be part of the intellectual core of graduate education. A recent alumni survey confirms that students benefit greatly from participation in these collaborative projects that bring together faculty and graduate students.
