Auburn University at Montgomery

AUM’s Master of Liberal Arts program is the only interdisciplinary master’s degree program in the state of Alabama, offering specialized classes in the various liberal arts disciplines, including English. Students take core classes in the program and then focus on their chosen disciplines, and they complete the program by writing and defending a thesis in their discipline.

Our Master of Teaching Writing degree emphasizes a deep knowledge of teaching in writing studies and a solid foundation in writing theory for a strong start to a professional life at the college level or in a corporate environment. Students are prepared for both teaching and professional writing careers through the capstone projects: a thesis and portfolio.
