English Programs - Graduate

The English Department at Rhode Island College prepares its graduate students to read, write, and think critically about literature and culture on an advanced level. We expose students to a variety of theoretical and pedagogical approaches, and we promote their ability to pursue independent research by presenting current resources and methodologies in the field.  By offering a broad range of courses, we allow students to expand their knowledge about literature, theory, and criticism; by working with students individually on directed studies, exams, or theses, we give students the opportunity to explore a subject in depth and to develop expertise in a particular area. The Creative Writing program allows students  to expand their knowledge of and proficiency in the crafts of poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. All of the graduate programs in English prepare students to function as literary professionals, whether as teachers, writers, or scholars.
