Degree Offered: PhD in communication and information sciences

The Academic Program

The Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in the Communication and Information Sciences (CIS) offers a PhD degree integrating and drawing faculty from the fields of communication, computer science, library and information science, and management information systems. Because of the broad knowledge base required to support this interdisciplinary approach, the program also draws on such fields as political science, economics, engineering, operations research, and behavioral sciences.

Recipients of the PhD will undertake careers in industry, government, private organizations, and colleges and universities.

Complete details on this program are outlined in a pamphlet, available from the department chair. 

Admission Requirements

  • Master's degree in business administration, communication, library and information science, information and computer sciences, or a closely related field
  • GRE or GMAT scores
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • Knowledge of computer programming and elementary statistics

Applicants from foreign countries must be academically qualified, proficient in English (TOEFL scores of at least 600 are required), and financially self-sufficient.

Program Requirements

The student will select four areas of emphasis from these eight: communication and information theories, computer software systems, data communications, information storage and retrieval, management information systems, organizational communication, policy and planning, and quantitative modeling methods.

Students must pass comprehensive examinations in the four areas of emphasis and complete and defend an original dissertation.
