Department of English at Illinois State University

English Department Ph.D Program Alumni

Illinois State University's Ph.D. program in English Studies is distinguished from traditional doctoral programs in English by its emphasis upon connecting research with pedagogical issues and its requirement that all doctoral candidates complete coursework and comprehensive exams exploring the interrelationship among literature and culture, rhetoric and composition, linguistics, and pedagogy. With a success rate of approximately 90% over the past twenty years or so, the Ph.D. program in English Studies at ISU is likely unrivaled by many programs in the placement of doctoral graduates in tenure-track faculty positions and other full-time, education related positions.

Graduates have earned this success because of the program's commitment to preparing future college and university teachers with careful attention to critical issues in pedagogy. Recent dissertations—all of which include the program's required pedagogical component—have addressed issues in rhetoric as well as developmental and advanced composition, the teaching of literature and children's literature in U.S. and global contexts, globalization and the rhetoric of technical communications, applied linguistics, the teaching of English to speakers of other languages, the administration of secondary English teaching preparation programs, and the administration of university writing and learning centers. Our model of integrating areas of research specialization and issues of pedagogy complements and enhances the core mission of Illinois State University, with its tradition of teacher training and its emphasis upon quality undergraduate education.
