Every student in the program is expected to demonstrate advanced skill in reading literature, responding to texts orally and in writing from informed theoretical perspectives, and in researching critical contexts.
Graduates of this program have completed doctoral studies at top universities including the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Northeastern University.

Still others are teaching at colleges and universities, community colleges, public schools, private preparatory academies, are practicing law or managing programs throughout the State of Florida and the United States.
