Introduction

The Ph.D. in Rhetoric, Writing, and Culture program provides students with employable skills in the area of professional and technical communication. This innovative and regionally unique program invites students to work at the intersection of rhetorical, textual, and cultural studies.

100% of the graduates from this program find employment in their field. Our graduates may pursue careers as:
