As a student in such a program, you will likely take classes such as English literature, literary theory and criticism, global environmental literature, poetry, linguistics, and writing. Your master’s program may be focused on the area or cultures you are most interested in studying for a rich and personalized learning experience.

    Upon graduation, students may enjoy a vast breadth of literary understanding (which is helpful in daily reading and conversation), increased and detailed analytical thinking as well as strengthened written and spoken communication skills – useful in complicated but necessary everyday activities.
