PhD in Literary and Cultural Studies
The PhD in Literary and Cultural Studies emphasizes the importance of discourse in structuring human experience. The program assumes a broadened definition of “texts” that places literature in its historical and cultural contexts and in conversation with critical theory and interdisciplinary methodologies. Students take core courses in British, American, and African American Literature and Culture, as well as Theory and Methodology. And they have the opportunity to develop their own unique course of study by taking specialized seminars that explore the complex intersections of literature and culture.
