a 10,000-12,000 word thesis with a thesis supervisor.

pursue personal research interests and develop your
research profile. All MA students are given the opportunity
to work as Teaching Assistants in the Department. You will develop skills and experience in teaching, writing,
research, communications, and inter-professional
collaboration, which are assets on the job market and
essential for professional degrees and competitive PhD programs.
The MA in English is designed to be completed in one
calendar year (September to August) and the majority of our students receive scholarship funding and a teaching assistant position. Part-time MA students complete the degree over three years and are eligible to apply for teaching assistant positions.
