*The Graduate School at Northwestern University is seeking exceptional
applicants to join the Ph.D. program in Media, Technology and Society (MTS)
to start in Fall 2014.*

The Media, Technology, and Society (MTS) doctoral program is an innovative,
interdisciplinary, and flexible curriculum focusing on the dynamic media
and technology environment and its impact. The program encourages students
to pursue their passion by designing individualized programs of study that
incorporate relevant classes from across Northwestern University. The
program faculty are internationally renowned for their research in areas
such as:


   Children’s development

   Digital media use and effects

   Health and well-being

   Human-computer interaction

   Innovation and change

   Media institutions

   Networks and organizing

   Social media

The MTS faculty undertake research in these areas using a wide array of
traditional and innovative research methods. In addition, they actively
pursue opportunities to make positive economic, cultural, and social impact
through their research in businesses, nonprofit, and government agencies.

MTS is a vibrant and growing program at Northwestern. Six new professors

media, technology and society.

As we continue to grow, we seek to recruit students from a variety of
backgrounds in social and behavioral sciences, human-computer interaction,
humanities, and historical and cultural studies. We are particularly
interested in students who can thrive within an interdisciplinary
environment, and bring to their graduate education a passion for research
and innovation.
