Students in the MA in English program gain the research and writing skills needed to succeed in teaching at the elementary, secondary, or community college level; a PhD program in English or related field; or a career in business, non-profit administration, or government.
One of the best things about being an MA student in FGCU’s English program is the dedicated support from the faculty. They really helped me to see myself as a professional and as a scholar.
~Savannah Jensen, University of Georgia English Doctoral Program
The coursework in the English Graduate Program at FGCU is rigorous and helps support people who are looking at futures in research, PhD programs, and education, but I found the professional and personal connections with other students to be the most valuable part of the program.
~ Shelby Whidden, English teacher, Labelle High School
