Abstract

I examined the online representation of the ninety existing PhD programs in rhetoric and composition in the United States and collected information on the courses offered in the programs, their home departments, and the programs’ mission statements. The findings expose issues with clarity and transparency of the information presented and suggest that further investigation of these programs’ curricula is needed.
