Seton Hall students pursing graduate degrees in English are as passionate and unique as the work they study. While they all share a love of language and a commitment to the written word, they pursue it in different forms: literature, writing or creative writing. We have a degree “spoke” for each, sprouting from a “hub” curriculum that covers research, literature and criticism. Students from this program continue on to Ph.D. and M.F.A. programs, teaching, and professional writing careers.
The English Department takes a holistic approach to literary studies, emphasizing both reading and advanced writing skills. All students complete a 12-credit “hub” of core requirements, which include literature, research and criticism courses. Then they choose to focus on one of three “spokes”: literature, writing or creative writing. In all three formats, students find engaging class discussions, connect with faculty mentors and receive one-on-one guidance to meet their goals.
