Facilities for Graduate Work

Facilities for graduate work include an excellent library system and a world-renowned research library, the Harry Ransom Center. The Ransom Center provides materials for critical, textual, and bibliographical studies, with its extensive holdings in earlier British literature (including the Pforzheimer Library), modern British and American literature, theatre arts, photography, and other significant subjects for literary and cultural research. The Benson Latin American Collection is one of many campus resources for advanced work in non-European literature and language. The Department of Rhetoric and Writing offers rich opportunities for teaching and study; and the Digital Writing and Research Laboratory enjoys a national reputation for investigating the intersections among technology, language, and literature.
