The easy starting point is Wikipedia:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_studies    Bunch of schools listed there, many of whom are represented on this list and will chime in to mention their own respective programs/schools.

As for me, I'm partial to the PhD program in Internet Studies at Curtin University of Technology.  ;)

I am looking to jump right back into school for the following academic year, and am trying to figure out which schools have which programs - it seems that the information/websites for all the programs that do exist are well ensconced within their respective institutions websites, which tend towards labyrinthine. Does anyone have a good list of institutions (US/elsewhere) where a Masters/PhD in fields either directly or otherwise closely related to "internet studies" (or "web science," or whatever term you use, as this even seems to be up in the air, as far as I can tell)? Obviously, there are places like Citizenlab, Berkman, and OII, which all seem to at least offer classes in some capacity, but are there any others i just haven't found?
