Doctor of Philosophy in English

The doctoral program is designed to lead to the PhD in five years of study beyond the MA degree. With a diverse range of graduate seminars and an active research faculty, the PhD program prepares students for a successful professional career in academia. Students can specialize in the fields of British, American, or Anglophone literatures and examine a range of critical, theoretical, and cultural perspectives on those literary traditions. Students will gain a broad expertise that will prepare them for researching and writing the dissertation. We are committed to the professional training of our students, and they have been successful in gaining academic employment.
