About the Department
Students make the choice to pursue graduate study in English for a number of reasons, both professional and personal, and bring to this study a wide variety of experiences and strengths. MA programs in English at Hunter are designed with this intellectual and practical diversity in mind. Through study with the Department’s research-inclined and pedagogically committed teaching faculty, our students are afforded myriad opportunities to develop and practice more sophisticated reading, writing and research skills than those required at the undergraduate level. In addition, those who enroll receive guidance in improving their own expertise as not just scholars but teachers of literature. Interested students may choose an English - MA in Literature, Language, and Theory, an MA in Adolescent English - MA / Advanced Certificate , or a Creative Writing - MFA .
