SilasWegg Posted January 6, 2014 Share Posted January 6, 2014 I keep hearing mixed messages regarding applicants applying to PhD English programs who already hold an MA. Some say the best programs want you right out of undergrad. Others say the MA is supposed to train you for PhD work and programs recruit from MA programs heavily. Should an MA in English write a thesis or is that just a waste of time? What else can an MA do to strengthen an application to PhD programs in English? Perhaps you are currently thriving in a top PhD program and your MA was the difference maker? Or maybe you now languish in academic obscurity, your MA gathering dust? Tell me augurs of graduate destiny... what is the MA? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
