Master of Arts in Rhetoric and Composition (MARC)

Beginning in Fall of 2014, the Department of English at UHD will offer a new graduate degree: a Master of Arts in Rhetoric and Composition (MARC). The MARC degree will provide students with graduate training in rhetoric and composition pedagogy as well as literary analysis. Those interested in a writing-based career, including teaching in a community college, will especially benefit from this Master’s program, as will anyone interested in continuing on to a Ph.D. in rhetoric, composition, or literary and cultural studies.

Contact Dr. Ellwanger for information.

New Optional Concentrations for the B.A. in English

In addition to the standard B.A. in English, students may choose to pursue three concentrations within the degree.

English Education: This concentration equips students with the content knowledge and teaching certification needed to teach high school and junior high English. Students graduating with this concentration will earn Texas state certification.

Creative Writing: This concentration in the B.A. in English emphasizes the development of creative writing skills with workshops in poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and literary translation. The concentration allows students to practice their creativity with internships at UHD’s creative writing journal, The Bayou Review.

Film Studies: Students completing this concentration will have additional training in the formal analysis and historical study of film and video. Students will explore a variety of film genres from the silent era to the present.
