The graduate Master of Arts literature program provides facilities for advanced study of literary texts. Students learn to read texts within philosophical and theoretical frameworks and become acquainted with terms and concepts of critical discourse as used in the discipline. Students develop skills at advanced research in scholarly monographs, collections, and journals, using both digital and archival sources, learning to find materials and to parse them critically. Examining cultural artifacts and becoming acquainted with the complex historical, geopolitical, and gendered structures of texts, graduate students acquire a sense of the richness of literary study. Students learn to express this sophisticated reading ability in well-researched papers that express mastery of their chosen fields.
