The Department of English and Theatre offers two undergraduate and two graduate degree programs each with several concentrations, depending on your individual needs.  We also offer a  3+2 Accelerated Dual Degree Program which allows you to integrate your current coursework for a B.A. in English degree (literature, creative writing, and technical writing concentrations) with the M.A. in English degree (Rhetoric and Composition, Literature, and Generalist concentrations) so you can complete both degrees in only five years. This is a low-risk, high-gain opportunity.
