Graduate Program in English

A rarity among English graduate degrees, Loyola Marymount University’s signature Master of the Arts program aligns with the university’s mission to educate the whole person and promote justice.  

Students have the unique opportunity to specialize in one of three distinct tracks of study: Literature, Creative Writing, or Composition and Rhetoric. Due to this unique structure, the MA addresses the needs of diverse students – scholars planning to pursue doctoral studies, writers seeking to hone their creative craft in pursuit of publication, teachers at the high school and college level, and professionals working to cultivate critical reading and writing skills applicable to careers in the public sector.
