MA in English Research and Scholarship
The MA in English allows you to tailor your course of study to explore areas of special interest.
Through an independent study, you can undertake a directed reading, research problem, or writing endeavor not otherwise covered by the curriculum and work with faculty experts who publish within their area of interest.
Recent independent studies include:
- Editing projects - working with faculty on a book or the James Dickey Review
- Shakespeare's contemporaries
- Native American mythopoetics
- Preparing digital editions of works using primary sources and archival materials
MA in English students distinguish themselves, not only with the quality of their scholarship, but also with the venues where their work is presented:
- Working on and/or writing reviews for the James Dickey Review and submitting work to other magazines/journals
- Presenting work on the annual panel at the South Atlantic Modern Language Association Conference and at other professional conferences
- Participating in creative readings and collaborative projects with faculty
Other resources include:
- The Thornton Writing Program, which brings nationally-acclaimed writers to campus to teach and present public readings.
- Lynchburg College graduate English conference held in the spring semester
- The James Dickey Review, LC's professional journal, where students can participate in the editorial work and potentially publish.
