Cal Poly’s Master of English degree program gives a thorough and intimate knowledge of British and American literature, literary theory, composition theory, and linguistics.

Students can also focus on:

  • Technical communication
  • Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL)
  • English education
     

Our students may also tutor in the University Writing and Rhetoric Center, and teach undergraduate composition as a Teaching Associate in the second year, receive funding to assist faculty research as Graduate Assistants, and receive support to attend academic conferences.

Our graduates' comprehensive grounding in rich historical and literary context of the field, from the Old English period through to the twenty-first century, prepares them for success in diverse fields, from teaching to editing and professional writing to further graduate study.
