The Master of Arts in English at Belmont is a community based program tailored for working adults which seeks to expand students' knowledge and understanding of literature by enhancing their abilities in critical reading, in practical literary analysis, and in effective written and oral communication.
The program offers:
Graduate courses at Belmont are small, engaging, and interactive, emphasizing textual analysis and effective oral and written communication. Courses introduce various traditions of interpreting texts and challenge those traditions by applying contemporary theories.
Students graduating from our program attend professional schools (including Law Schools and Ph.D. programs in English), teach English in high schools and community colleges or as adjuncts at universities, or work in publishing, communications, administration, and many other professions.
