PhD Program Overview

The Department of Literature Ph.D. Program is interdisciplinary in focus, although students may write dissertations on any topic or in any field in which members of the faculty do research. The Program allows students a large measure of independence; at the same time it encourages a community of scholar-critics whose concerns are not restricted to any single literature or critical tradition. The Doctoral Program Handbook contains detailed information about program requirements, timelines, and academic policies.
