MA Strode Program Requirements
We offer an MA in English Literature with a special concentration in Shakespeare and the Renaissance. This program gives students the opportunity to take advantage of the resources of the Strode Program within the context of a two-year degree.
The MA requires thirty hours of graduate coursework; fifteen of those hours are required courses in the Renaissance, including:
- Shakespeare in Performance Practicum (team-taught by a member of the Strode Committee and a professor in the Theatre Department)
- Renaissance Drama; or Sixteenth-Century Poetry and Prose
- The Strode Seminar
- One interdisciplinary graduate course, approved by the Strode Committee, in the Departments of History, Theatre, Modern Languages, Classics, Music, Religion, or Art History
The remainder of the coursework includes Introduction to Graduate Study, a course in Critical Theory, at least one course in medieval literature, and a teaching practicum.
All other requirements for the MA Strode program are the same as those for the MA Literature program.
