1) Below are the program student learning outcomes submitted last year. Please add/delete/modify as needed.
M.A. students explore the ways in which methodologies and assumptions are evolving in their own area of interest and how each part of English studies is being affected by developments taking place throughout the discipline. Students who concentrate in Literary Studies in English, Composition and Rhetoric, or Cultural Studies in Asia/Pacific complete a Master’s project, in which they apply the theoretical and methodological perspectives of more than a single course to the study of a particular group of texts or other forms of cultural production or to a particular theoretical problem. Students in Creative Writing complete their M.A. with a creative thesis, which they are then asked to place, in their oral thesis defense, within the context of other works in the same genre.
