Empire Studies, Certificate


This certificate program allows for the symbiotic development of rich, coordinated course offerings in areas (postcolonial literature and theory) that over the past several years have been in high demand across Literature and Creative Writing.  It also offers a more integrated approach to the period- and genre-based courses in English or British literature which the department has always offered.  Students going through this program should emerge with a much more comprehensive sense of how the experience of empire changed over longer periods of time, and a far more concrete sense of how empire played out in a variety of authors, works, and genres spanning several centuries and across the globe.  The certificate program would harness and consolidate energies that over the past several years have emerged organically among faculty and students.

To qualify for a Certificate in Empire Studies, Ph.D. students in the Department of English will complete twelve (12) hours of coursework in the field of empire and postcolonial studies.
