  1. Hello! I know some people who pursued McGill's MA English program.

Also, McGill's English MA has 3 streams - literature, drama, and cultural studies (I believe), so if you are precise about what you
  2. So I am probably over-stressing this, but I recently noticed a typo in an email that I sent to the graduate coordinator of a PhD program I am highly interested in.

I shared an additional writing sample - and I never heard back / was rejected shortly afterwards (unsurprisin
  4. Hello! I'm new to this forum, and figured I'd reach out to see if anyone on here might be able to share program recommendations pertaining to my research interests and existing background. For my Master's thesis, I examined questions related to television, cultural studies, etc. The degree I pursued was technically housed in an English department, though I pursued the 'cultural studies' stream. For my undergraduate, I completed a combined BA in English & Communication Studies. Essentially, in addition to media-based programs, I'm wondering if anyone can recommend American and /
