The PhD in English features areas of strength in American Literature and Culture, British and Postcolonial Studies, Crip/Queer Studies and Medieval and Early Modern Studies. Within each of these areas, students are invited to construct their own specializations and methodologies, ranging from sociohistorical angles to digital humanities and film studies.
Doctoral-level seminars are small, encouraging discussion and equal participation. Seminar presentations are modeled on conference papers, and many of our students have turned their coursework into conference presentations and articles that are suitable for publication in scholarly journals.
Application Deadline: January 15
