PhD Outcomes

The Department of English tracks PhD outcomes by cohort.  Each line in this chart focuses on a specific cohort, and includes the cohort's year of matriculation, size, and current employment by sector. Each line also indicates how many students from each cohort have received their PhDs and how many are continuing in the program.  The chart should be read in combination with "Futures" narratives from individual students about their post-PhD careers. The students in the most recent cohort on the chart are currently in their sixth year of the PhD program.
