PhD Programs in Ancient Literature
Programs in ancient literature focus on the cultural and historical impact that reading and literature have had on different civilizations in the past. Courses may focus on languages and different interpretations, as well as general history and culture.
The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
