Rivier's graduate English programs are distinctive for their breadth of course offerings and for the highly qualified faculty who teach them. Since today's English graduate students are as likely to be employees of high-tech firms as teachers and college professors, the program offers a blend of the traditional and the new. Regardless of the path you intend to pursue, Rivier's graduate English programs will provide essential skills in literature and writing, including an ability to think analytically, write effectively, and approach the study of language and meaning from the rich perspective of the past.
