|Description:||The Master of Arts in English at Guelph is designed to provide students with an intensive introduction to graduate-level work in English studies within a flexible program. Students can draw on the School’s strengths in the following fields: Colonial, Postcolonial, and Diasporic Studies; Canadian Literature; Early Modern Studies; and Sexuality and Gender Studies. Students can also pursue a wide range of research topics in consultation with faculty members actively engaged with the literatures of different historical periods and geographical locations, and with current debates in such areas as critical theory, cultural studies, and gender studies. Students with an interest in creative writing may apply to work with a distinguished writer on a creative thesis or project.
Preparation for advanced academic work at the Ph.D. level is the primary focus of the program, but the program also encourages students to consider alternative career paths in teaching, administration, advertising, research, journalism, publishing, law, arts management, the media, information technology, creative writing, public relations, the entertainment industry, and other enterprises requiring analytical, organizational, and creative skills in communications.
