English Graduate Student Association-EGSA

English Graduate Student Association

The English Graduate Student Association (EGSA) is an organization of and for UNC Charlotte's graduate students in the English Department. Every graduate student in the English program is automatically an EGSA member and we invite students from every graduate concentration in the program to become involved in EGSA activities.

EGSA plays an important role in Graduate Student Development by organizing activities with faculty, providing financial support for students attending conferences, and by hosting one of the largest Graduate Conferences in the southeast.  EGSA serves as a starting point for students to coordinate study groups for such things as the MA exam and coordinates various fundraisers and social events throughout the year.

We are thrilled to announce that Ashley M. Jones, Poet Laureate of Alabama, will be the keynote speaker at our 22nd annual conference this year!
