M.A. Thesis Options

Three Choices for your M.A. Thesis

Montevallo’s innovative English M.A. program helps you shape your degree to your personal and professional goals. Students choose from three distinct tracks for the final thesis, tailored to a variety of interests. The Critical Thesis helps students publish an article for a peer-reviewed scholarly journal in preparation for Ph.D. programs and other advanced scholarly work; The Creative Thesis prepares students to compose fiction or poetry and assists in securing venues for publication; and The Internship Thesis allows students to develop a portfolio of professional writing while providing opportunities to apply humanities training to private, non-profit, and government sectors.
