Welcome to English, M.A.
The Master of Arts in English has been offered at North Carolina Central University since 1939. The program has a long and established history as a cornerstone of the liberal arts tradition at NCCU. Our graduate program is committed to serving non-traditional students through a welcoming and supportive environment and through the evening scheduling of graduate seminars. Additionally, the program has served as a springboard for graduates of prestigious Ph.D. programs. Many of our graduates have gone on to pursue a doctorate and find our program to be exemplary preparation for a Ph.D. or for teaching at the college or community college level. Graduates of the M.A. program in English pursue law degrees, become professional writers and technical editors, further their studies in English Ph.D. programs, teach at the community college level, develop high school curriculum and publish creative writing.
