The Department of English and Writing Studies at Western offers two graduate degrees, a master’s and a doctoral degree in English. We offer our graduate students funding packages that cover the costs of tuition and fees. Our MA in English is a one-year program that emphasizes the deep study of literature and culture and the development of research, writing, and analytical skills. Our Ph.D. in English is a four-year program that trains select graduate students to be scholars, teachers, and researchers. With these skills, our Ph.D. graduates are prepared to embark on careers in both academic and alt-ac positions, from higher-education administration, research and consultancy, and beyond.
