Our MA degree approaches literature as a dynamic field that treats the idea of the text as varied and evolving. Among the many opportunities you can pursue in the program are teaching practicums, independent studies, and thesis projects (typically ten courses), providing students with opportunities to study various topics. 

We offer two tracks in the English Program: A five-year MA for current TCNJ undergraduates that can be completed with one extra year of study or a traditional MA that can be done full time or part time as your schedule permits. The full-time traditional MA can be completed in less than two years. You can also explore our classes by applying as a non-matriculated student.

Classes are offered in the evening and summer to fit your schedule. We teach a range of modalities, including hybrid and fully remote courses.
