Hi, everyone! I had posted something a few weeks back regarding my interest in Old Dominion's online PhD in English. I did some research and spoke to the school, and it doesn't seem like the right fit for me. But I'm a bit worried about something. I hope you can help me out. I'm interested in going back to graduate school for a second master's degree. I got my MA in 2014 from NYU. It was a master's degree in interdisciplinary humanities and social thought. I took SO many classes that were irrelevant to my field of study. It was truly the worst two years of my life. I despised NYU and its pretentiousness. I kind of want to go back to graduate school to become more knowledgeable in English literature, to better service my students, and to perhaps increase my chances of getting into a funded PhD program. But I'm worried. I had a few people on another forum chastise me and tell me it's overkill to go for a second master's. I'm curious about your thoughts. Please let me know. Thank you so much!
