Graduate Studies

The graduate program in English encompasses the study of British and American literature, literary history and theory, digital humanities, and rhetoric and composition, as well as linguistics.  At Northeastern University, graduate study in English takes full advantage of the opportunities that the greater Boston area affords as the site of rich cultural and educational resources

The Doctor of Philosophy degree program is full time. The other degree program, which can be taken either full- or part-time, is a Master of Arts in English.

Graduate students and alumni of the graduate programs are active in the discipline and honored as teachers and scholars. View a list of graduate student and alumni honors, activities, and accomplishments.
