About

A PhD in English at Dalhousie University is an invitation to explore and master an area of academic research and literary, social, and cultural history.

Overview

Applicants to Dalhousie's PhD program are eligible for a Killam scholarship nomination. 

Features 

  • PhD English students at Dalhousie University are funded by the Department for the first four years of study and are encouraged to apply for external funding every year. 
  • By the third year, and after Comprehensive Exams, PhD students are able to teach up to 4 half-credit undergraduate courses of their own.

Programme Structure

Curriculum: 

  • PhD students must satisfactorily complete six half-credit graduate seminars: three in the Fall term and three in the Winter term. 
  • If a seminar will be offered in the second year that is more closely related to the thesis area, students may defer two courses until the second year (this may, however, interfere with progress in the reading year). 
  • There is the possibility of undertaking a half-credit Directed Reading with a faculty member, subject to course selections, faculty availability, and Departmental resources. 
  • All graduate students must also complete the non-credit ENGL 8500: Professionalization seminar in the first year of the program.
  • Academic seminars are chosen in consultation with the Graduate Coordinator, based on student’s research interests and a strong background in all periods and genres of English literature.
