The Graduate Program in English and American Literature at Boston University provides comprehensive training in all areas of English studies. Coursework is offered in historical periods, individual authors, important literarymovements, literary theory and the history of criticism, and philology andlinguistics. Students develop a broad competence in all literary periods beforemoving to a more specialized knowledge of a single area or topic.
In addition to the standard Graduate School admissions forms, all applicants to the MA and PhD programs should submit a scholarly writing sample (approximately 15-20 pages). 申请文学相关专业，需要提交Writing Smaple（文章），所以没有丰富的经历和爱好，申请难度相对比较大。
