Accelerated Master of Arts in English

Why study English language and literature?

Because reading and writing shape the world.

Only current KU undergraduate students are eligible to apply to the Accelerated MA program. If you are not a current undergraduate student at KU, please review the admission requirements for the regular MA program.

The accelerated master's program will offer our best undergraduate majors the opportunity to earn both the BA and MA degrees in a focused and accelerated manner. The program enables qualified KU students to count 12 hours of graduate-level coursework toward both major requirements and the MA degree, which will be completed in the 5th year.
