1 PhD Programs in American Literature 2023
An American literature program typically focuses on studying many different genres of famous works. Students usually will be encouraged to read and discuss pieces from writers such as Earnest Hemmingway, Herman Melville and Mark Twain.
The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) is a doctoral or post-graduate degree. PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy), and PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways. To receive a PhD a student must demonstrate original research in their chosen field of study, produce a dissertation on that research, and defend their dissertation in front of other experts.
