Join a community founded on the idea that information is a manageable resource with a distinctively human component. The Ph.D. in Information Science and Technology provides an innovative and multidisciplinary program where you’ll gain the research skills and perspective to be a leader in academia and the information industries.
You’ll develop mastery at the intersection of human uses of information and digital technologies. Our faculty draw together scholars from management, communications, sociology, computing, psychology, policy studies, librarianship and other disciplines to provide a human-centered, rather than a computer-centered, approach to information.
We fund all admitted students and expect Ph.D. students to be dedicated to 4-5 years of intense, full-time, residential study to concentrate on your Ph.D. studies.
