    PhD Programmes in American Literature

    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 is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
