Masters in English

After you have earned your bachelor’s degree in English, you will have the foundational skills you need to move on a master’s degree. These skills include critical analysis, literature, writing, and communication. You may choose certain areas of specialization to narrow down your degree a little. Teaching or journalism could be your focuses, as could publishing, creative writing or technical communications. The courses you will take include English literature, composition, grammar and syntax. You can expect the length of English Master’s Programs to last between one and three years.

Many high-level courses are available online to allow busy students like you the chance to earn your master’s degree online. You can combine the convenience of online study with the benefits of face-to-face classes at the university you choose to receive your degree from. When seeking out online classes, look for courses that are endorsed by accredited universities. This will ensure their authenticity. You are a good candidate for online study if you are self-motivated, disciplined and have a strong ability to work independent of anyone else. Online, you will have the chance to view lectures, read texts and submit assignments, similar to what you would do in a traditional classroom setting.

Earning a Masters in English is one of the most versatile majors you could choose. It sets you up for entrance into careers like journalism, publishing, writing, business, the arts, teaching and many more. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, an 8% growth is expected in the need for writers, editors and authors within the ten-year time span from 2008 to 2018. This is the average job growth in the nation. If you have technical and computer experience, you may have an advantage over your competition.
