The Department of English at the University of Arkansas teaches students how to think
critically, argue persuasively, and pursue fulfilling goals. We also prepare students
to apply for competitive jobs as top communicators in a wide range of professional
fields: education, journalism, law, research, the corporate sector, non-profit work,
and creative writing, among others. See, below, the different programs our department offers, and feel free to e-mail us
at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
While rigorous in terms of the level of research and scholarship they require, the M.A. and Ph.D. Programs in English also emphasize professionalization to prepare students for employment inside or outside of academia.
One of the nation’s oldest M.F.A. Programs, and one of the “Top Five Most Innovative” (The Atlantic Monthly), we offer degree tracks in Fiction, Poetry and Literary Translation.
The Graduate Certificate is a fully online, 12-credit-hour graduate program developed to meet the needs of working professionals and graduate students in Northwest Arkansas and beyond.
