Hudson Strode Program in Renaissance Studies

MA Requirements

We offer an MA in English Literature with a special concentration in Shakespeare and the Renaissance. This program offers students the unique opportunity to specialize in Renaissance studies at the master’s level. MA students may elect a thesis or a comprehensive exam to complete their course of study.

Coursework

The Strode MA requires thirty hours of graduate coursework, including courses in literature, theatre, and theory. Individual courses may be substituted in the plan of study with approval from the Director of the Strode Program.

In addition, students must take two semesters of the Practicum in Teaching College English (EN 533 and EN 534), which do not count toward the 30 hours required for the degree.

All other requirements for the MA Strode program are the same as those for the MA literature program.
