Program Information

School:Concordia University - School of Graduate Studies
Faculty:Faculty of Arts and Science
Degree:Master
Field of Study:English Language and Literature, General
Description:The Master of Arts in English is designed to deepen and extend students’ comprehensive English literature background. The program helps students develop specialization in a particular area of English literary studies.

An important objective of the master's program is to introduce students to advanced study and scholarly activity in order to provide an avenue towards a Ph.D. for those who wish eventually to seek a career in university teaching and literary scholarship. Towards these ends, the program is concerned to develop in students strong analytical skills and a grounding in diverse critical and theoretical approaches. Equally, the Master of/Magisteriate in Arts in English is designed to round off a reasonably complete higher education in literary studies for those who do not intend to proceed to a further degree in the field, but who may branch into other areas as diverse as law, publishing, editing, journalism, administration, management, communications, or teaching at the high school or college level.
