B.A./M.A. in English

The Department of English offers the following dual-degree programs:

  • Dual B.A./M.A. in Literature
  • Dual B.A./M.A. in Rhetoric and Composition

These dual degree opportunities enable qualified students concentrating in literature or rhetoric and composition to enroll in graduate courses late in their undergraduate program and apply the coursework toward both the bachelor’s and master’s programs.

Students must be formally accepted into the dual degree program by the department and College of Arts and Sciences to be able to take graduate courses as an undergraduate. Additionally, acceptance into the dual program does not constitute admission to the master’s program. Students must fulfill regular graduate admissions requirements and apply for the master’s program following college processes.

Students pursuing the dual degree track are strongly advised to review the M.A. program requirements detailed in the department’s Graduate Catalog, including the Graduate Research Skill requirement toward which students can apply undergraduate coursework.

Information about the dual program, including application instructions and program requirements, can be found at
