The Graduate School at Northwestern University is seeking exceptional

The MTS doctoral program is an innovative, interdisciplinary, and flexible
curriculum focusing on the dynamic media and technology environment and its

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.

In recent years, MTS alumni have gone on to work at the University of
Illinois, University of Missouri, Chinese University of Hong Kong,
