The MA in Rhetoric and Writing is an innovative, flexible degree program focused on educating the next generation of humanities leaders and thinkers who will engage their work in both academic and professional contexts. The Master of Arts degree in Rhetoric and Writing serves both as:

  1. A professional degree for students interested in technical and professional writing, and a career track in industry, nonprofits, or in non-faculty roles in educational institutions.
  2. A preparatory degree for doctoral work in rhetoric, writing and/or composition studies, communication studies, or technical communication.

Designed for completion in two years, the MA in Rhetoric and Writing provides students with a theoretically grounded, yet practical experience in rhetoric and writing studies.
