The English Department’s online Master of Arts program is designed to make the UNO M.A. in English more accessible to students. It provides students with advanced subject-matter expertise in both literature and rhetoric/professional writing. To earn this degree, students must complete 36 credit hours of coursework, all of which can be completed online. Up to nine of these hours may be taken on campus. The degree can be completed in 2-3 years, depending on how many hours a student takes and whether or not summer courses are taken.
