Hire a Cornell Ph.D. or M.F.A.
Our Ph.D. and M.F.A. graduates are a dynamic group of writers, scholars, and teachers, trained in a diverse range of critical approaches and areas of study.
Cornell graduates have gone on to thriving careers at a variety of academic institutions, from small colleges to large universities, and our alumni also include distinguished writers who have forged careers outside of the academy.
In addition to producing innovative Ph.D. and M.F.A. theses, our graduates also receive extensive teacher training. Cornell graduate students teach multiple seminars in the university-wide First-year Writing Program, experience which prepares them to design and teach courses in creative writing, literature, and cultural studies to a range of students, including agriculture and engineering majors as well as students in the humanities and social sciences. Cornell graduates thus offer substantial teaching experience to prospective employers in addition to scholarly excellence.
