ATLAS Institute Interdisciplinary PhD in Technology, Media and Society
University of Colorado, Boulder

The University of Colorado at Boulder recently completed formal  
approval of a new, interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Technology,  
Media and Society.  This program is offered by the ATLAS (Alliance  
for Technology, Media and Society) Institute at CU-Boulder and  
involves dozens of faculty from disciplines ranging from the arts,  
humanities and social sciences to sciences, engineering, business and  
law.  It is intended for highly motivated students whose  
interdisciplinary interests at the intersections of technology, media  
and society are not met well by traditional disciplinary Ph.D.  
programs.  Each student in the program forms a faculty committee  
appropriate to his or her interests from the outset and works with  
that committee to construct a set of courses and candidacy exams  
customized to those interests.  The program has been in operation in  
pilot mode since fall 2005; it now invites applications from  
excellent students for enrollment in fall 2007.
