English Emphasis

Southwest Minnesota State University is offering a Master of Science in Education with an English emphasis. The English emphasis is ONLINE and appropriate for licensed English/Language Art teachers, two-year college instructors, high school teachers seeking credentialing for concurrent enrollment courses, and people with bachelor's degree in English who wish to pursue coursework.

This emphasis allows students to add content and depth to their knowledge of literature and composition through research-based coursework. Choose 18 credits from the possible graduate credits offered in Eng/Lit.  While SMSU offers an M.S. in Education with an emphasis in English, you do not have to be part of that program to take part of the English graduate courses. 

We also offer two graduate certificate programs, one in Literature Studies (11 credits) and one in Writing Studies (10 credits) for students who would like to earn a credential but do not need a complete degree. 

For more information on the curriculum please check out the course descriptions located in the  academic catalog.
