The graduate program in English offers two graduate certificates, one in Literature and Language Studies and one in Professional Studies. Students can complete one or both certificates and later apply the course work to a master’s degree. For high school instructors who have a master’s degree in another area, the credits can be applied toward faculty credential requirements for teaching dual credit English courses. For information on dual credit teaching, see the SACSCOC Faculty Credential Guidelines and the Texas Education Agency Dual Credit FAQsWith the Literature and Language Studies Certificate, students will analyze, interpret, and synthesize literary texts to write about a broad range of genres, literary movements, and major authors. Additionally, students will understand foundational English language history, changes, and practices.
