It takes 9 years to get a PhD in humanities?

"Law students get a diploma in three years. Medical students receive an M.D. in four. But for graduate students in the humanities, it takes, on average, more than nine years to complete a degree. They could spend another nine years, or more, looking for a tenure-track teaching job at a college or university — without ever finding one." More from New York Times article
