PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS ///

Our distinguished faculty are trained specifically in the discipline. Most have earned their Ph.D.s in American studies and all have worked extensively in the field as scholars, teachers, curators or creative artists. Our time and effort as teaching faculty are focused on American studies students. At the same time, we enjoy productive and cordial relations with our colleagues in other departments who teach and conduct research in related fields. Students may take carefully selected courses in those departments, as students in other departments do in American studies.

• One of four Ph.D. programs in the Midwest American Studies Association, Saint Louis offers award winning faculty who excel in teaching, mentoring and scholarship. • An innovative, interdisciplinary program in which students work closely with faculty to develop individual research paths toward their career goals. • A vibrant community of diverse faculty, students and staff, who embody the Jesuit traditions of commitment to social justice and reflective engagement with their communities, whether local, regional, national or global.

We do not claim to study and teach everything in our huge field. The faculty is especially strong in several areas, including transnational American studies, visual culture and material culture studies, African-American literature, Southern history and culture, intellectual history, environmental history, museum studies, urban studies and postwar American culture. These specialties do not exhaust the range of faculty competence, but they give an idea of the unique character of this interdisciplinary field as practiced at Saint Louis University.

DEGREES AND PROGRAMS OFFERED ///

Saint Louis University's graduate program in English provides students with scholarly training in English language and literature. Encountering courses that span the full experience of works in the English language — from Old Norse to Shakespeare to contemporary and postcolonial writing — students in the program have the chance to pursue specializations in a great variety of literary fields and in the study of rhetoric and composition. The department aims to provide graduate assistantships to all students entering the program. The typical assistantship affords two years of support for master's candidates and at least four years of support for doctoral candidates in the form of a nine-month stipend (currently $18,000), 18 credit hours of tuition remission annually and health insurance.

• Master of Arts (M.A.) in English • Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in English

M.A.: The nonthesis option for the Master of Arts degree requires 30 credit hours of coursework beyond the B.A. The thesis option, which is recommended for those interested in eventually pursuing a Ph.D., permits students to substitute a thesis for six of the 30 required credit hours of coursework. Both options are normally completed in two years. M.A. students planning to teach at Saint Louis University are required to take a class in the teaching of writing in their first semester, and all must take courses in the methods of literary research and critical theory; other coursework is elective. At the conclusion of their coursework, students pursuing the nonthesis option take a one-hour oral examination on works drawn from a list that is made available to them at the outset of their program. Students pursuing the thesis option select a topic in consultation with a director, have their completed thesis reviewed by a board consisting of the director and two other faculty members, and are then examined orally over both the thesis and the general M.A. reading list. Both the thesis and nonthesis options for the M.A. program are also offered at Saint Louis University's Madrid campus. Ph.D.: The doctoral degree requires a minimum of 24 credit hours of coursework beyond the M.A., followed by the doctoral competency exam, which has a written and an oral component. The written component takes the form of a competency essay, written over the course of seven days. During the oral exam, students will be asked questions about the competency essay, as well as texts on their preparatory reading list. Before taking their comprehensive exams, all Ph.D. candidates must display reading proficiency in one modern foreign language relevant to their research. Students concentrating in medieval or renaissance literature also need to demonstrate competence in either Latin or classical Greek. The current doctoral "tracks" among which the student selects are: • Anglo-Saxon and medieval literature • Medieval and early 16th-century British literature • Early modern British literature • The British long 19th century • 19th-century American literature • Modern Irish literature • 20th-century British literature and cultural contexts • 20th- and 21st-century American literature • Transatlantic modernisms • Contemporary postcolonial/non-Western literatures and cultures • Rhetoric and composition • Life writing

Applicants with different majors who possess strong backgrounds in English and American literature also will be considered. Ph.D.: An M.A. in English is required, though students from other fields with strong backgrounds in English literature will be considered. Students with a B.A. seeking admission directly to the Ph.D. program still need to complete the M.A.

Career Paths: Possible careers for graduates include college/university professor, community college professor, a wide array of research and publishing positions, and high school teacher or administrator. ONE NORTH GRAND BLVD. • ST. LOUIS, MO 63103 • SLU.EDU

This program familiarizes students with the richness of thought, culture and society of the past. By studying the history of civilization, students become acquainted with all fields in the humanities, as well as with developments in other disciplines, such as law, medicine, business and technology. M.A.: Upon admission to the program, students choose a specialized area of study in late Antiquity/Byzantium, medieval European, early modern European, modern European, U.S. or world history. They must complete 30 credit hours of coursework, including: • HIST 5000, Theory and Practice of History: An Introduction • 12 credit hours (minimum) in the primary field, which must include a “studies” course (HIST 5200/5300/5400/5500/5600/5700) and at least one seminar (HIST 6800/6810/6820/6830/6840) Students may choose a thesis or nonthesis option. If they choose the thesis option, six credit hours of thesis research will replace six credit hours of coursework. For both options, up to six credit hours of coursework may be taken in fields outside of history. Competency in one foreign language is required by the beginning of the second year of coursework. After completing their coursework, nonthesis students must pass a two-hour written examination and one-hour oral examination on their major field. Thesis students must complete their thesis and a one-hour oral defense of the thesis. There is also a combined M.A./Ph.D. track for those who enter the master’s program intending to continue on to doctoral studies. For these students an M.A. exam or thesis is unnecessary. Ph.D.: Doctoral students must complete 27 credit hours of coursework if entering with an M.A. and 36 credit hours of coursework if pursuing the combined M.A./Ph.D. Coursework must include a minimum of 12 credit hours in the major field and six hours in the minor field. Major doctoral fields are offered in medieval European, early modern European and U.S. history. Minor fields include these areas, as well as late Antiquity/Byzantium, modern European history, world history or a constructed field defined by the student with the approval of the director of graduate studies. The primary purpose of coursework is to prepare students for careers as scholars and teachers. After completing their coursework, candidates must pass a comprehensive examination, consisting of two four-hour written examinations — one each in the major and minor fields — and a two-hour oral examination. The culmination of a doctoral student's education is the completion of a doctoral dissertation. Twelve credit hours are given for the writing of the dissertation.

DEGREES AND PROGRAMS OFFERED ///

The Integrated and Applied Sciences (IAS) doctoral program was established to broaden student exposure to all areas of science, encourage collaboration across departments and colleges, and better train graduate students to present their research to a more diverse audience. This interdisciplinary program is large enough to provide students with broad exposure to collaborative scientific projects, yet small enough for students to have one-on-one interaction with their faculty mentor. This personalized approach is necessary for developing the communication skills that will enhance employment opportunities for students and, in keeping with SLU's Jesuit tradition, endow them with tools to better contribute to society.

• Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Integrated and Applied Sciences

This doctoral program trains scientists for careers in academia as well as chemical, biological, environmental and sustainability science industries and prepares them to collaborate with other professionals. Scientific training takes place in an interdisciplinary environment with faculty from science departments in the College of Arts and Sciences as well as from the Center for Sustainability.

OVERVIEW /// The department of molecular microbiology and immunology (MMI) offers a graduate program in molecular and cellular virology and immunology leading to a Ph.D. degree. The goal of the MMI graduate program is to graduate exceptionally well-trained researchers who are prepared for a career in academic science or biotechnology. Research in the MMI doctoral program is diversified. Areas of research emphasis include cell and molecular biology, virology and immunology. Graduate instruction in the MMI program includes: • Advanced coursework • Training in scientific writing and oral presentation skills • Training in teaching skills for students interested in an academic career • Performance of original biomedical research leading to scholarly publications and the Ph.D. dissertation Although each Ph.D. candidate will have a least one primary mentor within the MMI department, the responsibility for the education of each student ultimately lies with faculty of the MMI department as a whole. Students with a bachelor’s degree enroll in the MMI doctoral program following completion of the year-long basic biomedical sciences core program. This one-year program provides a strong foundation for subsequent specialization in microbiology and/or immunology and allows the student the opportunity to rotate through various laboratories in the Health Sciences Center before choosing a specific field of study. Students with a master’s or doctoral degree may be considered for direct entry into the MMI doctoral program. Students are also accepted into the MMI doctoral program through the Saint Louis University M.D./Ph.D. program. In all cases, students select a mentor within the MMI department with whom to conduct their dissertation research and are then formally accepted into the MMI doctoral program.

G R A D UAT E ED U C AT I O N Nursing + School of Nursing Saint Louis University is a Catholic, Jesuit institution that values academic excellence, life-changing research, compassionate health care, and a strong commitment to faith and service. Founded in 1818, the University fosters the intellectual and character development of nearly 14,000 students on two campuses in St. Louis, Missouri, and Madrid, Spain. Building on a legacy of nearly 200 years, Saint Louis University continues to move forward with an unwavering commitment to a higher purpose, a greater good. OVERVIEW /// Saint Louis University's School of Nursing has achieved a national reputation for its innovative and pioneering programs. The School of Nursing is among a handful of accredited schools to offer bachelor's, master's and doctoral programs. The programs are nationally recognized for their innovative and comprehensive curricula. Master of Science in Nursing, Nurse Practitioner The M.S.N., nurse practitioner program prepares RNs to be leaders in the nurse practitioner role through comprehensive coursework and practical experience in clinical settings. Additionally, an educator track may be added for those who want to become nurse faculty. The program requirements range from 36-41 credit hours of coursework. Individualized full- and part-time curriculum plans are possible. All students complete 20 credit hours of core courses. The remaining credit hours include cognate, general and specialty courses required for each specialty and role option. Available specialties include: adult/gerontological acute care nurse practitioner, adult/gerontological primary care nurse practitioner, family nurse practitioner, pediatric primary care nurse practitioner and family psychiatric/mental health nurse practitioner. Master of Science in Nursing, Accelerated (A.M.S.N.) The M.S.N., accelerated program is a 21-month program that prepares individuals who hold a bachelor's degree in another field to be registered nurses. Graduates earn a M.S.N. degree and are prepared to sit for both the nursing licensure exam and the certification as a clinical nurse leader (CNL). The clinical nurse leader is a fast-emerging role developed by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. The CNL provides leadership at the point of care that focuses on outcomes measurement, risk assessment, quality improvement, interprofessional communication and evidence-based practice. Doctor of Nursing Practice (D.N.P.): The D.N.P. degree is a practice-focused doctoral degree that educates nurses to become expert clinicians, leaders in health policy and catalysts for improved health care delivery within an interprofessional environment. This online program is available to students who possess a bachelor's degree in nursing (B.S.N. to D.N.P.) or a master's degree in an advanced practice area such as a nurse practitioner or clinical nurse specialist (M.S.N. to D.N.P.). Both provide sequencing of courses in a flexible manner. The courses are offered online in the spring and fall, with one course offered online in the summer session. The B.S.N. to D.N.P. requires a total of 68-70 credit hours beyond the B.S.N. depending on the population specialty focus. Students are prepared as nurse practitioners and can choose the educator option for an additional focus. The courses can be taken over a four- to five-year period dependent on full- or part-time study. The M.S.N. to D.N.P. requires a total of 28 credit hours beyond the M.S.N. Students may transfer five to six credit hours of comparable graduate-level coursework at the discretion of the School of Nursing.

OVERVIEW /// Occupational therapy is a health profession that employs everyday activities in the service of helping people to live healthy and satisfying lives. Services are provided to individuals who are at risk or who have disabling conditions or life circumstances that prevent full participation in the roles and activities that they value. Students in Saint Louis University’s department of occupational science and occupational therapy master's program apply their occupational science knowledge to supporting the health and quality of life of individuals throughout the lifespan, including those with disabilities and chronic illness. The design of the occupational therapy curriculum at Saint Louis University is formed by the integration of the following four thematic areas: • Jesuit-based educational philosophy and goals, including the ultimate outcome of men and women in the service of others • Reasoning as the ultimate learning objective, resulting in practitioners who are independent and competent problem-solvers and seekers of knowledge • Occupation as a means and outcome of intervention • Development of a professional identity Curriculum themes progress through increasingly complex learning, from understanding to evaluation. Themes in each area combine with the curricular content and evolve into student learning outcomes to produce an educational curriculum that emphasizes compassionate and reflective approaches to achieving occupational performance/participation in the lives of the individuals our graduates serve. Occupational therapy graduates will engage in practice grounded in the understanding and application of the power of occupation to enhance the health and well-being of individuals, communities and societies. Master of Occupational Therapy The Master of Occupational Therapy program promotes individualized and small learning groups within the classes. Every student is paired with a faculty mentor and encouraged to seek guidance throughout the program. Along with this faculty partnership are opportunities for research projects that facilitate learning within faculty members’ scholarship. The program requires 66–72 credit hours for completion. Full-time students typically complete the program in one summer, three traditional semesters and two 12-week fieldwork experiences.

OVERVIEW /// The Master of Science in dentistry degree and certificate in orthodontics program at Saint Louis University’s Center for Advanced Dental Education (CADE) provides intensive instruction and training in the biological and clinical sciences related to the specialty of orthodontics. Orthodontics was created as a specialty of dentistry to address complex problems involving the growth and development of the facial structures and dentition. In this specialty, special emphasis is given to conditions that require tooth movement and alterations of the bones of the facial complex. Our program, which is one of the oldest orthodontic programs in the U.S., began training orthodontists in 1948. Since then, more than 700 students have studied and earned their degrees at Saint Louis University; the SLU orthodontic program has produced more orthodontists than any program in the world. Our alumni have compiled an excellent record of accomplishment by providing high-quality service to their patients, teaching, conducting research and providing service to the profession of dentistry and the specialty of orthodontics. The graduate program in orthodontics at CADE begins approximately the third week in June each year and continues for 30 consecutive months with graduation in December, with a 36-month option available for international students from specific countries. This well-rounded, balanced program trains students in clinical orthodontics, biomedical sciences and research discovery. Graduates are prepared to pursue careers as a clinician with a practice limited to orthodontics, a researcher or a teacher of orthodontics. Requirements for the master's degree include the successful completion of all coursework, satisfactory treatment of the assigned patients, acceptable performance on all didactic and clinical examinations, and the successful completion and defense of a thesis. The curriculum is designed to satisfy the requirements for licensure as a specialist and the specialty board in orthodontics as well as the Master of Science degree. Program Structure: Students in the program begin with basic science instruction designed to provide fundamental knowledge of all aspects of the human system with a particular focus on growth, development and the biological aspects of tooth movement and alteration of bones. Following preliminary laboratory and classroom instruction, each resident initiates treatment on a large number of patients who present a broad array of dental malocclusions and skeletal deformities. Faculty introduce students to a variety of treatment philosophies, mechanics and appliances through lectures, seminars, laboratory exercises and demonstrations.

In the clinic, students are exposed to a wide array of patient types, including children, adolescents and adults. Students are also exposed to cases with compromised oral health that require consideration of periodontal, restorative and temporomandibular joint treatment. As a result, many patients are treated by an interdisciplinary approach with other health care professionals. Throughout the clinical experience, each student receives a great deal of faculty attention. Students also receive training in research design and statistics and must conduct an original research project. This effort leads to the preparation and defense of a thesis and, subsequently, the production of a manuscript suitable for publication in a journal relating to the specialty of orthodontics. The experience of discovery provided by such research is an integral part of the graduate program, and we expect that the student will produce a meaningful contribution to the field of orthodontics.

Strict attention is given to the integration of advances made with simplified systems (genes, enzyme or receptor) into more complex systems (cell, organ and organism). This approach affords the development of an appreciation of drug action from an effect on a gene, receptor or enzyme to the therapeutic use of a drug to treat human disease. Students in good standing enter the graduate program in pharmacological and physiological science after completing one year in the core basic biomedical sciences program. In exceptional cases, students are directly admitted without completing the core curriculum. These students typically possess an advanced degree (i.e. Master of Science) and often have workplace experience. In August of each year, newly admitted students start a year of didactic training (20 credit hours) weighted towards advanced topics in pharmacology and physiology. All classes have morning schedules, leaving the afternoons and evenings free for research. These courses are followed first by a preliminary examination that takes the form of the specific aims and research strategies sections of an NIH R01 application, and then two to three years of graduate work devoted almost exclusively to research related to their dissertation project. Graduation follows successful completion of a written thesis, and public and private oral defenses. The average time to graduation with a Ph.D. in pharmacological and physiological science is about five years.

ADMISSION CRITERIA /// Applicants should have a bachelor's degree with a background in biology, chemistry (general and organic; physical chemistry recommended, but not required), physics and mathematics (including calculus). Qualified candidates who are deficient in certain prerequisites may be admitted with the expectation that the deficiencies will be rectified while in residence.

There are five required courses covering pharmacology, physiology, statistics and bioinformatics. Students may elect to take additional courses in other departments at Saint Louis University, or cross register for courses at Washington University in St. Louis and the University of Missouri-St. Louis. An innovative feature of our training program is the teaching opportunities afforded our trainees. Foremost is the undergraduate course called Drugs We Use and Abuse. This is administered and taught entirely by our graduate students to about 75 undergraduate students at the main campus of Saint Louis University. The course consists of 35 lectures per year plus discussion sessions. Typically, each graduate student in our program is responsible for three or four lectures on a variety of subjects. If desired, these student-teachers may apply for evaluation by the Reinhart Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning to receive an independent review of their performance and receive advice on how to improve their teaching skills.

Built upon an unwavering commitment to social justice, the school is a leader in integrating social work practice and education with faculty members who have made substantial contributions to the profession. Our interactive teaching methods integrate community-based practice with classroom activities and discussions. Plus, small class sizes facilitate an atmosphere of intellectual dialogue that fosters relationships between students and faculty. Master of Social Work The Master of Social Work program requires 57 credit hours and prepares students to be advanced practitioners who, consistent with their chosen concentration, act as agents of change to promote individual and societal well-being and can engage in professional, evidence-based practice in a rapidly changing environment. After completing the professional foundation course work, students focus their area of studies by selecting one of three concentrations: community and organization, clinical or applied behavior analysis. Variable Course Delivery Formats The M.S.W. program offers multiple course delivery formats to assist students who are working full- or part-time and for students who want to progress faster by taking additional credit hours per semester. Formats include the traditional 15-week format (2.5-hour classes, fall and spring semesters) and a 10-week format (3.5-hour classes, summer semester). Electives may also be offered in the following formats: two intersession periods of week-long classes, online blended classes or five consecutive Saturday sessions (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.). Doctor of Philosophy in Social Work The Ph.D. in social work requires 72 credit hours and offers rigorous methodological and interdisciplinary training for social workers and related professionals.

OVERVIEW /// Saint Louis University's department of theological studies focuses primarily on the academic study of the Christian tradition in its historical and cultural contexts. In advancing the Catholic and Jesuit tradition of Saint Louis University, the department approaches revealed Christian truth with a special emphasis on its relation to human culture and the requirements of social justice. M.A. in Theology: The Master of Arts program offers two tracks: research and religious education. Students desiring to continue in doctoral work should choose the research track. Students seeking careers in schools, parishes, hospitals, nonprofit organizations or other religious institutions should choose the religious education track. The religious education track consists of a two-year program of study that includes 33 credit hours of coursework (including 200 credit hours of supervised internship) and comprehensive exams. The research track consists of a two-year program of study that includes 36 credit hours of coursework and a 50–70 page thesis, and students must demonstrate proficiency in one or two foreign languages. Students in the research track may choose to concentrate in constructive theology, historical theology or theological ethics. Ph.D. in Historical Theology: The Doctor of Philosophy in historical theology program is based upon the Catholic tradition and approaches theology from a historical perspective. This comprehensive way of examining theological issues takes a double thrust, namely studying the issues within their own context of time and place while also relating them to the broad developments within the tradition of Christian theology from the early church to the present day. The doctoral program has three areas of specialization: early Christianity, medieval Christianity and modern Christianity.

OVERVIEW /// Saint Louis University’s Master of Arts in women’s and gender studies provides an interdisciplinary education about contemporary social justice issues, preparing students for leadership and advocacy roles in community or academic settings. While gender is the primary focus, each course and the discipline as a whole examine gender in light of race, ethnicity, class, sexual identity, ability, age and religion. The discipline teaches students to think critically and to engage in the world as responsible citizens. The M.A. is a 30-hour program. Graduate work is designed to develop: 1) students’ ability to engage critically with multicultural feminist theories concerning social inequalities; 2) strong research and writing skills; and 3) knowledge and skills that enable communication with diverse audiences, coalition building for social action and development of initiatives for change. The interdisciplinary M.A. program welcomes applicants from all academic fields. There is also an accelerated B.A./M.A. program for undergraduates at Saint Louis University. Students who enter the accelerated B.A./M.A. program take six credit hours (two graduate classes) in their senior year that count for both the B.A. and M.A. requirements. Each student works out a curriculum plan for his or her area of specialization and a capstone project in consultation with the director of graduate studies. Course Requirements – 30 credit hours (10 courses total): Five core required courses: • WGST 5010: Feminist Theory • WGST 5020: Feminist Epistemologies • WGST 5030: Cultural Methods: Gender, Politics, and Power • WGST 5040: Current Issues and Debates • WGST 5910: Women Leaders Internship Five cross-listed elective courses: The electives are chosen from dozens of courses in women’s and gender studies; political science; African-American studies; philosophy; English; history; languages, literatures, and cultures; fine and performing arts; social work; and law, among others. Capstone project: A capstone project and presentation based on either an internship or research developed through coursework is also required.
