The Fordham Department of English offers both M.A. and Ph.D. degree programs. Admission is selective, and the modest size of the graduate program allows us to offer small, rigorous graduate seminars, as well as focused mentorship for each student.

Members of the graduate program benefit from a broad and flexible curriculum. Our affiliation with programs such as Medieval Studies, American Studies, and Creative Writing, and our membership in the New York City Doctoral Consortium, provides students with the opportunity to construct programs of learning that cross traditional disciplinary, curricular, and institutional boundaries.
