The PhD in English and the Teaching of English
The PhD in English and the Teaching of English is an innovative and distinctive program that integrates research in literature with practical and theoretical training in the teaching of English. The aim of the program is to prepare students for teaching careers in English at two- and four-year colleges and universities.
The department has an established record of doctoral training, having offered doctoral degrees in English since 1971. The PhD in English and the Teaching of English houses the Teaching Literature Book Award, an international, juried prize that recognizes excellence in research on teaching literature at the college level. It is the only PhD program in English in Idaho, Montana, or Wyoming. The PhD attracts applicants from around the region, nation, and the world, and is especially well-suited for those whose primary career goal is a tenure-track position at a community college.
