PhD Program

PhD in Rhetoric, Writing, and Professional Communication

The PhD program offers students the opportunity to combine theory and practice in the study of rhetoric, writing, and professional communication. Focusing on public and community rhetoric across genres and media, we provide future scholar-teachers with diverse, well-supported research and pedagogical experiences and foster professional development within intellectual and professional communities. 

Please contact the PhD Coordinator, Dr. Matthew Cox (, if you have questions about the program. We're excited to talk with prospective students interested in beginning the program in Fall 2018.
