The Ph.D. in Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media brings together a diverse and accomplished faculty from across the university, both established senior faculty and younger faculty in new areas. Some will teach the required core courses in the program, and some will teach electives and special topics courses within their own departments. All will be available to serve on advisory committees for students. There are two categories of faculty associated with the doctoral program, Program Faculty and Affiliated Faculty.

Program Faculty

The Program Faculty are full and associate graduate faculty in the Departments of English and Communication who have an expressed interest, a record of research and scholarship in relevant areas, and the ability to teach core courses or courses in the disciplinary areas (see Curriculum). Program faculty will teach the core courses, direct dissertations, serve on advisory committees, and elect the Program Committee that governs the program.
