Welcome to the Master of Arts in English
Available at the Milledgeville Campus
Our Master of Arts in English program is located in historic Milledgeville, Ga. The university is located approximately 100 miles from Atlanta and Augusta and 75 miles from Athens. Milledgeville is in the heart of the Middle Georgia area, which is close to several recreational sites.
A small graduate enrollment provides close interaction between students and faculty.
Degree requirements include:
- 36 graduate semester hours in English, including Methods of Research and three other graduate seminars
- Demonstrated reading proficiency in a foreign language
- A written comprehensive examination
- A graduate thesis or graduate portfolio
All graduate courses are listed at the 5000- or 6000-level. Please note that whereas 6000-level courses are graduate seminars, 5000-level courses are cross-listed at the 4000-level and therefore include graduate and undergraduate students.
A common reading list for the comprehensive examination offers all students the opportunity to gain a breadth of knowledge about literature.
