Ph.D. in Rhetoric & Writing


The Rhetoric & Writing doctoral program prepares students for impactful careers as rhetoric and composition faculty and administrators. Our students engage a range of intellectual approaches at the intersection of history, theory and pedagogy. Students learn together in and beyond the space of the seminar room, developing research, teaching and civic identities through a range of coursework in rhetorical, cultural, empirical and digital approaches to writing.
