Master of Arts - English - Literature at University of West Florida - Pensacola: Tuition: $15,239.00 USD/year (Scholarship Available)

The Master of Arts in English program at UWF is home to a vibrant community of scholars and creative writers who are passionate about the study of literature, discourse, and print culture. The degree offers an opportunity to work closely with faculty mentors and to pursue individual research interests. Small class sizes (strictly limited to 20 students) are the norm.


Graduates of the M.A. program in English are highly successful writers, speakers, presenters, leaders, and educators who possess excellent analytical and communication skills.

Some students may also wish to pursue the degree for purely philosophical reasons.  The study of literature provides exposure to the world of ideas and the aesthetics of the written and printed word. Courses in the program cover both canonical and non-canonical works of fiction and nonfiction. Courses also provide broad exposure to texts from a wide range of historical periods and cultures. Students interested in the program are welcome to visit the department and meet with faculty to discuss individual research interests and career goals.
