I’m currently hunting around for graduate programs, trying to find something that suits my mind and my wallet.Â Here’s what I’ve been looking at thusfar:
- School of Library and Information Science, Indiana University - Information Science Ph.D
- Cornell Information Science - Ph.D Program — the course requirements look the best so far…Â but the tuition won’t be fun.
- Information School, University of Washington - Information Science Ph.D… Seattle would be fun.
I especially like Cornell’s Cognition concentration in their Infosci program.Â It entails several cognitive science courses along with the usual information science courses, offering a glimpse at both how we produce information, and how we consume it.Â I think my metaphysics class solidified my interest in cogsci, if only because of its emphasis on the ultimate nature of human understanding.Â Hopefully the courses I’ve taken at Ithaca will bode well for my graduate admission.
