As many of you know, I am currently working on my Master’s Degree. I am working through the Bread Loaf School of English (affiliated with Middlebury College) and it is definitely geared towards teachers. In essence the program requires students to take two classes each summer for 5 summers in order to earn a Master of Arts degree. The vast majority of these classes are literature based, with a requirement that 2 of the classes be British Literature prior to 1700; 2 classes be British Literature post 1700; 1 American Literature; and 1 World Literature course. The remaining 4 courses can be electives.
