"IF WE COULD FIRST LEARN WHERE WE ARE AND WHERE WE ARE GOING, WE WOULD BE BETTER ABLE TO JUDGE WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO DO IT."

ABRAHAM LINCOLN

Doctor of English Literature (PhD)

School of Social and Human Studies
Atlantic International University



The Doctor of English Literature (PhD) objective is to help students explore numerous approaches to literary study and a diversity of literary areas or periods as a prelude to their own advanced individualized research. The English Literature program areas of study include: Comparative Literature, Commonwealth Literature, American Studies, Humanities, Modern Thought and Literature, Composition Studies, Cultural Studies, and Rhetoric. The English Literature program is designed to advance the professional development of experienced english literature graduates and professionals in the english literature arena by extending their knowledge and equipping them with broad research and process english literature skills, enabling them to make a key leadership contribution to their chosen fields.

AIU’s Doctorate degree in English Literature goes one step further by allowing students to study and research multiple key areas of computer science to develop a unique foundation of practical knowledge and computer science theory.

Your AIU Distance Learning Doctorate program in English Literature will be a custom-made program, designed just for you by you and your advisor. This flexibility to meet your needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our program does not require every student to study the same subjects and use the same books and other learning materials as every other student. Instead our online Doctoral programs are designed just for you. They are individually designed to meet your needs and help you to reach your professional and personal goals.

Important: Below is an example of the topics or areas you may develop and work on during your studies. By no means is it a complete or required list as AIU programs do not follow a standardized curriculum. It is meant solely as a reference point and example.
