Find Out How Good You Really Are.The Doctor of Philosophy in Information Studies – the only one of its kind in the New York metropolitan area – prepares individuals to assume leadership positions in research, teaching and in practice. Graduates of the program contribute to theoretical and operational research in existing and new fields, and are equipped to fill the expanding need for information managers, researchers and faculty members in the broad, interdisciplinary field of information studies. The 60-credit 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.

The Ph.D. in Information Studies is organized with two research options – Information Access and Systems and Information Studies and Services. The program is part-time. Courses are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. during the first year.

Prospective students from all backgrounds and industries are welcome. For additional information, contact Dr. Gregory Hunter, program director, at ghunter@liu.edu or call 516-299-2900.
