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.

“The Declaration [of Independence] was not a protest against government, but against the excess of government. It prescribed the proper role of government, to secure the rights of individuals and to effect their safety and happiness. In modern society, no individual can do this alone. So government is not a necessary evil but a necessary good.”
—Gerald R. Ford (b. 1913)
