Welcome to the English Department’s Master of Arts Graduate Program
Queens College has one of the largest and most distinguished English departments in the CUNY system. As a faculty, we are proud of our community of graduate students and supportive of their academic ambitions, whether they intend to pursue a PhD, expand their credentials in their professional field, or bring their boundless enthusiasm for learning to the classroom.
The MA program offers a varied curriculum across British and American literature, Anglophone literature, and critical and cultural theory. Students are taught how to read texts within interdisciplinary and theoretical frameworks and to become acquainted with a variety of approaches and scholarly methods. Our goal is that students experience the richness of literary study and feel confident producing work in their chosen specialist fields.
Come visit our scenic campus, attend our annual graduate conference, and meet our students and faculty! We look forward to welcoming you to our vibrant, challenging, and exciting program.
