About CRDM >
The PhD Program in Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media prepares doctoral students to analyze the social, cultural, rhetorical, philosophical, and political dimensions of information technologies, new communication media, and digital texts and to actively engage digital media through research, criticism, production, and practice. The interdisciplinary program is jointly housed in the departments of Communication and English and draws on faculty with expertise in both the humanities and social sciences.
Our graduates have been very successful finding employment in a variety of positions in academia (both at research-intensive universities and at teaching-oriented liberal arts colleges), government and corporate organizations, where there is a growing demand for the interdisciplinary skill sets developed in CRDM. For a list of alumni job placements, please see https://crdm.chass.ncsu.edu/
CRDM students also have the opportunity to apply for NC State's graduate certificate in digital humanities, supported by the unique array of classes and resources available in the Research Triangle: https://dh.chass.ncsu.edu/
Assistantships in CRDM >
Funded students have opportunities to be trained and then teach in a wide range of undergraduate courses in the departments of Communication and English; the university program in Science, Technology, and Society (STS); and the School of Public and International Affairs. They may also be assigned to work as research assistants with faculty in the program and in affiliated departments, including federal and international grants, and to serve as administrative assistants, consultants, or researchers for units on campus that include the First Year Writing Program, DH Hill Library's Makerspace, the Dept. of Information Technology (serving digital humanities curricula), and the Laboratory for Analytical Sciences.
On CRDM’s website, in the drop-down menu for prospective Students, you will find answers to questions about the general requirements for applying, the application process, funding and financial aid, and international student applications.
If you have any additional questions, contact CRDM's Program Associate Jeffrey Leonard (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Interim Director David Rieder (email@example.com).
