The University of Missouri’s College of Arts and Science now offers an online master of arts in English — the only online MA in English from a Research I university in the Midwest, and one of five in the United States.
Mizzou’s 100% online master’s in English provides a broad perspective on literature and culture, while encouraging specialization and advanced research work. Building on a bachelor’s level knowledge of English, MA students will gain important skills that they can apply directly to their careers — such as analysis of written texts, oral and written communication, and research.
The online English MA benefits those seeking a career that calls for writing and analysis, and teachers seeking career advancement. Beyond career benefits, the study of literature also offers enrichment and self-improvement.
Nationally recognized faculty
