MA Program

The MA in English at the University of Calgary offers students the opportunity to complete a range of graduate courses as well as undertake an independent research project in either the one year Course-Based MA or the two year Thesis-Based MA. Areas of specialization include but are not limited to digital and media studies, medieval and early modern literature, dramatic literature and performance studies, graphic literature and comics, cultural and gender studies, nineteenth-century studies, postcolonial literatures, Canadian literature, American studies. In either option, students are able to specialize with a creative writing project under the supervision of one of our internationally recognized writers.

In both programs, students may elect to do the creative writing option. See the application, portfolio and final process under Creative Writing, and under each program's requirements.
