I was reading this thread and thought wow I wish there were some recent posts on here–then I came upon yours. I’ve been looking at JPEE very closely; it’s made it to my top 5. I have an MA in Language and Literacy with a concentration in adult literacy development. I love the idea of the dual PhD but was concerned that the education focus might be too K-12 focused. There isn’t much on the site about that or at least that I could find. Can you speak a bit to the education piece of the program? How does that factor in to someone like myself whose focus is on adult literacy, basic writing, and adult pedagogy?

Looking forward to your response

M

I’d argue that University of Michigan’s Joint Program in English and Education, headed by Anne Gere, could be added to a list of great programs. JPEE is small, but grads get tenure track jobs, and the funding here is amazing. (I’m a doctoral candidate). Check it out here: https://jpee.lsa.umich.edu/

Your list looks really good. (And yes, by all means, apply to Washington State!) And you’re absolutely right to be considering only positions that offer funding. This list http://www.u.arizona.edu/~enos/ might allow you to dig a little deeper and consider other programs as well. While you’re looking only at MA programs, it’s actually good to consider PhD programs that also offer MAs, because offering the PhD is an indication of the depth of resources that they’ll be able to dedicate to what you’re studying and the range of coursework you’ll be able to do. I also think you’re right about the leanings of your literature professor, who might not fully understand what looks good to people hiring specifically in rhetoric and composition.

Feel free to drop me a line if you have further questions: my contact info is linked on the main page. And good luck!

I’m applying for fall 2016, and my focus in on pedagogy (with some focus on ESL writers). I am looking only at MA programs and preferably ones with ample funding. I have a list of six schools: Purdue, Arizona State, DePaul, Colorado State, Washington State, and Miami Ohio. One of my recommenders (a literature professor) told me that I’m aiming too low and should look into Berkeley, Stanford, Harvard, etc. While I was flattered that she thinks highly of my academic abilities, I also wasn’t sure whether this was another case of literature professors and rhetcomp professors having very different ideas about “good” programs. What do you think? How’s my list?

FYI–my eventual goal is to teach first-year composition at either a two-year or four-year school. I may pursue a PhD eventually, but it’s not in my plans right now.
