Course content

The Department of English at the University of Windsor offers two fields within the M.A. Program in English: Literature and Creative Writing, and Literature and Language. Within the Literature and Language field, there are two different options: the Thesis Option and the Course Work Option.

The Literature and Creative Writing field allows students to combine graduate-level study of literature with advanced work on creative writing in a two-term workshop and a significant independent writing project. Within the Literature and Language field, the Course Work Option offers exposure to a wide variety of topics in literature, composition, and rhetoric. The Thesis Option allows students to investigate a single topic in depth through independent, extended research with faculty supervision.

The Faculty of Graduate Studies requires that students maintain at least a 70% cumulative GPA at all times. Courses in which a grade of 70% or higher is received will be accepted for graduate credit.

In accordance with the Policy of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, the Department of English allows the grade of Incomplete to be assigned to a student who so requests, at the discretion of the instructor, after discussion concerning the nature of the work to be completed and the time period for completion. Normally, the Department of English requires that all work must be competed within six weeks after the last date of the examination period for a letter grade to be assigned.

A record of the specific conditions must be recorded on the Incomplete form, available from the Departmental Graduate Secretary. This form must be signed by the student, the seminar instructor, and the Department head. If the work is not completed within a twelve-month period, then a permanent grade of "Incomplete" will be assigned.

Ontario Graduate Scholarships and SSHRC Canada Graduate Scholarships are major external sources of financial support for graduate study at the Master's level. They are highly competitive, and students are encouraged to apply for these in the fall of their final year of undergraduate study, and/or first year of graduate study.

University of Windsor scholarships and tuition bursaries are awarded by the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research on a competitive basis. Entrance scholarships may be worth up to $7,000 paid out over a year.

Graduate Assistantships
Most full-time candidate-level students are awarded Graduate Assistantships. The maximum Graduate Assistantship requires 10 hours work per week during the Fall and Winter Terms for a total stipend of $5,135.20 per term (2015-16). Partial assistantships with prorated stipends may also be awarded.

Students holding Assistantships may be assigned to a number of different teaching-related duties in the Department. For example, they may be instructors in the first-year Composition course (26-100) (N.B. Graduate students assigned to teach Composition are expected to enroll in Composition Theory and Practice, 26-596), they may assist a faculty member in an undergraduate literature course, or be assigned editorial duties in conjunction with editing and publishing practicum courses. Most financial awards have early deadlines.
