Programs of Study

At the undergraduate level, IUP students who choose to major or minor in English will develop strong expertise at writing and critical thinking. Students in English also explore a wide variety of literary genres and theories. The IUP undergraduate English curriculum provides options for earning a Bachelor of Arts in English degree, Bachelor of Arts in English/Pre-Law degree, or a Bachelor of Science in English Education degree.

At the graduate level, the IUP English Department offers four Master of Arts programs: a Master of Arts/Generalist, a Master of Arts in Literature, a Master of Arts in Teaching English, and a Master of Arts in TESOL. Our department also offers two internationally recognized doctoral programs: Graduate Studies in Composition and TESOL and Graduate Studies in Literature and Criticism.

Student members of the English Department are offered many unique learning opportunities. We have an annual Undergraduate English Conference every spring where students present their own literary studies and creative writing. We have a literary magazine called the New Growth Arts Review whose student editors publish IUP student fiction and poetry. We also have a large English Peer Mentor Program through which advanced English majors provide guidance to students new to the program. And there’s even a Student Lounge where all English majors have their own campus mailboxes and can hang out and talk to friends and professors.
