Ph.D. in Information Studies Open House
02/01/2014, PhD in Information Studies Open House Feb 1B. Davis Schwartz Memorial Library, Room 362, 2:30 - 4:00 PM
The Ph.D. in Information Studies is the only degree program of its kind in the New York metropolitan area.
This on-campus open house will be held on Saturday, February 1 from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. in room 362 of the B. Davis Schwartz Memorial Library. Faculty and advisors will be on hand to explain degree requirements, research activities and course schedules.
Taught by faculty of the prestigious Palmer School of Library and Information Science, the doctorate in Information Studies trains scholars to conduct research in today’s critical areas of information organization, retrieval, management and policy and to assume leadership positions in research, teaching and in practice. Graduates of the program are equipped to fill a documented need for researchers and faculty members in the broad field of information studies. The program utilizes a strong interdisciplinary approach because solutions to the problems of organizing, storing and retrieving vast amounts of information require the combined knowledge of computer scientists, management specialists, educators, psychologists, librarians and others.
This program offers two main areas of study – knowledge organization and access, and information studies and services – and is structured to accommodate part-time students who are already working in the information field or in related professions.
Applications for the Fall 2014 class will be accepted through March 15, 2014.
Registrants will be notified of a snow date in the event of inclement weather.
