ENGL6994Advanced Research Project
A required course open only to students in the 12-month academic MA. The course requirements are a conference paper and an article. These two pieces of work will be based on one essay undertaken during the previous 10 months of course work. The article should be 20-25 pages in length and should be striving to meet the standard of a scholarly article that could be published in a refereed journal. It does not have to be submitted for publication. The conference paper, based on the article, should be a good example of this oral form. The paper does not have to be delivered at a conference, although students will have the opportunity to present their conference papers at an optional department symposium to be organized for late summer each year.
