Our graduate studies by research programmes are designed for scholars to pursue interests within the fields of communication and information studies through collaboration with faculty members across various subdisciplines. Research students have the opportunity to work with diverse researchers who offer a multiplicity of methodologies in a challenging but friendly intellectual community.

Faculty members at the School use and teach a wide range of research methods including experimental, ethnographic, critical, and survey methods. Research students work closely with faculty advisors to select coursework to support and expand their expertise. Doctoral students are provided mentorship and experience in classroom teaching and research. Research students and faculty have jointly presented research at regional and global conferences and have collaborated on numerous publications in top academic journals.
