MA in English (Gender and Sexuality in Literature)

Students in the Gender and Sexuality in Literature stream will approach gender and sexuality studies through the lens of literature. They will develop a foundation in theoretical approaches to the field and undertake research for a thesis in a topic of their own choosing.

Our program is small and offers students attentive supervisory support.

Chapters of MA theses regularly become academic articles and conference presentations.


Students will normally undertake:

  • Theories of Gender and Sexuality in Literature: GSL Core Course (3 ch)
  • One GSL elective (3 ch)
  • 3 more one-term academic graduate courses (9 ch total)
    • We recommend that 3 ch of these credits be taken through GWS 4004: Seminar in Gender and Women’s Studies.
  • English 6100: Research Methods (6 ch)
  • Thesis on a GSL topic

This program is designed to be completed in 20 months.
