MA in English

Welcome to the QC English Department’s Master of Arts (MA) 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 fields, or bring their boundless enthusiasm for learning to the classroom.

Our English MA program offers a diverse curriculum across American, British, and global literatures and a wide range of fields, forms, and theories. 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 for students to experience the richness of literary study and feel confident producing work in their chosen 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 exciting program and vibrant community.
