The Department of English offers three Master’s Degrees, with concentrations in Literature, a Special Field of Interest, and the English Language. It also offers an M.F.A. in Creative Writing.
Because the M.A. is conceived as a pathway to the doctoral program, the English department does not typically offer a terminal Master’s Degree. It does offer a dual M.A. with Information and Library Science (ILS), and a B.A./M.A. for IU undergraduate majors that requires five years of study (4+1). In rare circumstances, application for a terminal Masters’ degree may be approved by the director of graduate studies. Applicants to any of these programs should indicate their choice in their personal statement.Talk with an advisor Find more information in the student portal
