Graduate Programs

The Department offers the M.A., the M.F.A. in poetry or fiction, and the Ph.D. with concentrations in literary studies, rhetoric and composition, and creative writing. The Department also actively supports the Graduate English Association's goals to assist graduate students by providing helpful teaching resources, professional development tips, and a sense of community.

Learn more about the application process and download the required files, consult sample syllabi for lower division, literary studies, rhetoric and composition, and creative writing offered in the Department, or inquire about departmental deadlines.

You can find additional information about the graduate programs in English at Georgia State University on the GEA website and in our department's Graduate Handbook.

We should point out that we no longer maintain application packets in hard copy format - everything is available online, including GSU's Graduate Catalog.
