Online-Hybrid MA

The Online-Hybrid Track for Teachers is designed to appeal to current teachers, those who plan to seek a teaching certification, or anyone seeking engagement with literary works that are regarded as “canonical” or otherwise influential in American culture.  Through discussion, secondary criticism, oral presentations, and written essays, the courses seek to deepen students’ knowledge of texts taught frequently in secondary schools. In addition, students augment their skills in close reading and critical argument, and they explore the literary-historical and cultural issues involved in canon formation.  Electives offer opportunity to focus on a particular genre, historical period, or method, and the special project involves research and explication of a critical controversy surrounding an identified literary text or group of texts.
