Student and Alumni Dissertations

Ph.D. students are academically prepared and successful in publishing books, journal articles, and other written contributions. 98% of our Ph.D. graduates are published.

Rigorous scholarship is a distinctive aspiration of our program. We set very high academic standards at every point, including admissions qualifications, coursework, and dissertation writing. Our students’ dissertations are expected to make substantial scholarly contributions in their fields of study. Moreover, as the information here demonstrates, our students and alumni are exceedingly active in scholarly publication (and the conference presentations that lead to publication).



With individualized attention from our world-class faculty, over 60% of our students have published dissertations with acclaimed publishers. At Wheaton, mentoring doesn't stop when you graduate. Our faculty will not only help you as a student, but also provide post-graduation mentoring, encouragement and accountability to publish and jumpstart your academic career.
