The Ph.D. in Literature
- The Ph.D. in Literature, offered by the Program in Literature, is an innovative interdisciplinary program which focuses on the study of literature from a transnational and intercultural perspective. Combining in one doctoral program the forces of a number of departments and programs: Classics (Arabic, Greek, Latin, Syriac), East Asian Studies, French and Francophone Studies, German and Russian, Iberian and Latin American Studies (Portuguese and Spanish), Irish Studies, Italian Studies, Philosophy, and Theology, the Ph.D. in Literature brings together outstanding faculty and resources to enable doctoral students to study literature both within traditional disciplines and across disciplinary and national boundaries. Designed for the intellectually creative student, the Ph.D. in Literature requires both the breadth and depth of a doctorate in French while offering students ground-breaking curricular freedom in the design of a degree which is responsive to their own interests in literature.
- Uniquely tailored to take advantage of Notre Dame's many resources, the Program offers an unprecedented level of intellectual and financial support. All admitted doctoral students are funded for at least 5 years in the form of full tuition waivers and teaching, research, or graduate fellowships. The total annual financial package currently runs between $39,220 and $44,220.
