The Doctor of Modern Languages degree (D.M.L.), like other doctorates, is an academic degree of the highest level. It is similar to the Ph.D. and the Doctor of Arts degree in Foreign Languages.
Currently, the D.M.L. degree is unique to one school in the United States: Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont. The degree prepares teacher-scholars in two modern languages, with additional focus on their respective literatures and cultures. It is a flexible degree that encourages depth of research, but differs from the Ph.D. in the variety of subject matter studied as part of the doctoral thesis.
