Dear Air-L community,

We invite applications to the Communication and Information Sciences 
(CIS) PhD program at the University of Hawaii. Please forward this to 
potential students.

Founded in 1986 to educate leaders at the nexus of technology and 
society, CIS is one of the first interdisciplinary programs of its kind 
in the country. It is sponsored by four units across three colleges:  
Information and Computer Sciences (College of Natural Sciences) the 
School of Communications and department of Library and Information 
Science (College of Social Sciences), and Information Technology 
Management (College of Business). The program is structured for 
interdisciplinary experience across these fields. Curricular focus areas 
and faculty research expertise currently include Communication & 
Information Theories, Community Engagement, Data Science, Digital 
Business Transformation, Human-Computer Interaction, Information Policy 
& Planning, and Social Informatics (including Social Media studies).

Applicants must have a Master's degree in one of the above fields or a 
related field. Please see https://www.hawaii.edu/cis/, in particular the 
Prospective Students section. Applications are due February 1st for fall 

The program has an opening for a graduate assistant in Fall 2023, which 
has relatively light duties, a stipend, tuition waiver and benefits. 
Additionally, CIS students often find teaching assistantship positions 
in the constituent departments (see links below). Some international 
students receive support from the East-West Center, 

Please direct queries to the CIS Chair Dan Suthers at 

Students interested in a more technical degree might also consider the 
ICS Computer Science graduate programs 
(https://www.ics.hawaii.edu/academics/graduate-programs/). Students who 
have not yet earned an MS might consider the ICS MS program, 
Communications or other programs in the new School of Communication and 
Information (https://sci.manoa.hawaii.edu/programs/), Information 
Technology Management (https://shidler.hawaii.edu/itm/about), or Library 
and Information Science (https://www.hawaii.edu/lis/).

Best wishes to all for the New Year!
