School of Communication

Doctor of Philosophy in Media, Technology, and Society

The doctoral program in Media, Technology, and Society (MTS) provides a graduate environment for innovative research in the study of media and communications technologies.

Interdisciplinary in approach, the program allows students great autonomy both within MTS and the University at large to design individual programs of study. Drawing on the University's diverse resources and distinguished faculty, MTS encourages research on historical, contemporary, and emerging media that challenges traditional disciplinary boundaries and assumptions.

The MTS faculty are internationally known scholars who are trailblazers in communication research, with interests spanning boundaries both methodological (with quantitative and qualitative methods) and substantive (with foci as diverse as internet studies, organizational contexts, network studies, and interface design). The program aims at equipping scholars to address significant theoretical and research issues in media and communication technology.
