Master of Science for Teachers
The Master of Science for Teachers in the English Department is a degree designed specifically for teachers. No foreign language is required. The student takes eight four-credit graduate courses, normally including at least one course in both the teaching of writing and in the study of language. All eight courses will be within the English department, but candidates may, with prior approval from the Graduate Director, take up to two graduate courses in other departments provided such courses are directly related to their needs as teachers of English.

The department also offers special summer programs that can be taken to fulfill some of the course requirements for the MST degree. The New Hampshire Writing Program and The New Hampshire Reading and Writing Program are three-week institutes on the teaching of writing in grades K-12. Up to six graduate credits from each of the institutes can be applied toward the MST degree. Summer Studies in Composition and Literature, a five-week summer program offers a selection of four-credit courses in British and American literature, composition theory and research as well as writing workshops in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.
