English Ph.D. Placement

English Ph.D. Placement

The Department of English is dedicated to preparing students for the academic job market. Over the past four years, 95% of our job candidates found full-time academic positions, 78% of which were tenure-track.

We have a rigorous job market preparation program. Candidates are counseled at each stage of the job search process (document development, interview practice, job talk preparation, etc). The job placement program is coordinated by the Director of Placement and Professional Development (Professor John Bugg for 2013-2014).
