The ATLAS interdisciplinary Ph.D. program facilitates truly interdisciplinary coursework and research. The common thread of this research is that information and communication technology is the enabling force. Students admitted to the program are self-directed, highly motivated students who enter the program having demonstrated high achievement and a strong understanding of the interdisciplinary education and research that they wish to pursue. Examples of the areas in which students may seek to study and conduct research include ICT4D, crisis informatics, the use of ICT to enhance learning, business and economic models for the digital economy, globalization and the networked information age, how ICT influences journalism and newsgathering, aspects of gender in the context of women and video/computer gaming culture, and the relationship between children and video art and media.
