For graduate students, we offer a doctoral program committed to inquiry in composition, pedagogy, literacy studies, rhetoric, and digital media, along with opportunities to gain experience in mentoring and curriculum development. 

We also provide a Graduate Certificate in Composition for students who pursue other graduate degrees but seek certification for taking courses that investigate the teaching of writing and related fields.

All first-year graduate students in the PhD program spend their first year on a non-teaching fellowship that offers the opportunity to become acclimated to graduate study without the pressure of learning to teach.
