Subject: Communication and Information Sciences Ph.D. Program in

Communication and information technologies are rapidly becoming
integral to modern life, a transformation that calls for leaders in
the nexus of technology and society with interdisciplinary expertise.
The Communication and Information Sciences (CIS) PhD program at the
University of Hawai'i was established in 1992 to meet this need. CIS
presently has active focus areas in biomedical informatics,
communication and information theories, communication policy and
planning, human-computer interaction, information systems and
services, management information systems, and a new focus area in
social informatics. 

Applications for Fall 2011 admissions are due February 1st for all
applicants. Admission requires a master's degree in a related field
of study. Full admission requirements and procedures are listed on
our website at <>. 

This program is a collaborative effort between the School of
Communication, Department of Information and Computer Sciences,
Department of Information Technology Management, and the Library and
Information Science Program. This partnership allows CIS PhD students
to draw on the broad expertise held by the partnering faculty members
in developing integrative advances in the communication and
information sciences.
