Central to Activating the Power of the Written Word.
The MA in English at CCSU offers a variety of courses on a broad range of topics reflecting the diverse interests of the English Department’s faculty. Typical approaches include in-depth examinations of individual authors, comparative analyses of a particular theme or issue, explorations of established or emergent literary forms, historical treatments of particular periods, and investigations of important critical or theoretical methods. Independent studies and guided readings are also available to allow students to pursue interests not addressed in scheduled courses. With its diverse, engaged faculty and structured but flexible programs, the two tracks offer students a thorough, rigorous training in British and American literature and literary studies that allows students to tailor their experiences to meet their professional and intellectual needs and interests.
