Prepare for Academic and Leadership Positions in Research, Technology and Education
The rigorous research-oriented doctorate prepares scholars who study the relationship between people, technology/media, and learning in all contexts.
In the doctoral program, you will participate in the design of rich, technology-based multimedia learning environments and conduct research on factors that influence learning, as individuals engage with these environments, and as groups interact with them and each other.
The program is highly selective and fully funded for full-time students.
What you'll learn
Your research and coursework will draw from cognitive science, the learning sciences, game studies, and design-based methodologies to conduct original research on how technology and media can support learning.
You will have opportunities to work with some of the preeminent scholars in the field, along with internationally recognized research centers. In addition, you will participate in our design-oriented studio-based learning courses, and are encouraged to combine theoretical research with design and practice in appropriate learning contexts.
