- The English department also offers an M.A. in Ecocriticism Option that provides a foundation in the study of literature’s relationship to environmental issues.
- M.A. students select graduate seminars in American, British, comparative and ethnic literatures, as well as in critical theory, cultural studies, poetics, environmental literature, postcolonial studies, and other areas.
