The Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program in Communication and Information Sciences
The Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in the Communication and Information Sciences offers a PhD integrating the fields of communication, computer science, library studies, and management information systems. Because of the broad knowledge base required to support this interdisciplinary approach, the program also draws from such fields as political science, economics, engineering, operations research, and behavioral sciences. This unique program is sponsored by four academic faculties: Communication, Information and Computer Sciences, Information Technology Management, and Library and Information Science.
The CIS Program has a variety of focus areas, including biomedical informatics, communication and information theories, communication policy and planning, human computer interaction, information systems and services, management information systems, and social informatics.
