Graduate Program

PhD graduates in Duke Chapel

Graduate training for the Ph.D. in Romance Studies at Duke University combines work in one or more languages taught in the department (French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Haitian Creole) with a broad and interdisciplinary methodological formation in literary and cultural analysis, critical theory, visual studies, and history. Our aim is to provide a combination of depth of knowledge in particular fields with a breadth of intellectual engagement and dialogue. Our program offers the opportunity for students to draw on the strengths of faculty within Romance Studies and to work with colleagues in other departments.
