All students must start with ENG 5950: Introduction to English Studies, which lays out the vision for the total program. This program has only one start per year, and that is Summer 1 which begins in May.

All coursework for the Master of Arts in English for secondary teachers is entirely online. No campus visits are required. Graduates of the program are welcomed and encouraged to participate in commencement ceremonies, which are held in May of each year.

The projected course schedule below helps students to plan which courses to take each term. It is subject to change.
