Fitchburg State University’s School of Graduate, Online and Continuing Education will be hosting a free webinar at 4 p.m. Thursday,  March 11, highlighting its new Master of Arts in English Studies program, now offered in a hybrid format. Those interested in attending the free webinar can register online at

The program introduces graduate students to literature, culture, and teaching, connecting students to a diverse and impressive community of teachers, scholars, and writers.

Students can pick from two possible emphases: literature and teaching. Students in each emphasis may take courses in both tracks, exploring major literary theories and the history of English as a discipline, as well as bridging the gap between cutting-edge scholarship and classroom practice. The program also enables practicing teachers to expand strategies for teaching literature through the application of current modes of criticism.
