The purpose of the Information Science + Studies (ISS) graduate certificate is to offer an interdisciplinary program at the graduate level that focuses on the study and creation of new information technologies and the analysis of their impact on art, culture, science, medicine, commerce, society, policy, and the environment. The goal of the certificate is to broaden the scope of the typical disciplinary PhD program and to engage the student in related research and practice. The graduate certificate is not intended to provide a disciplinary canon but rather to develop a structured set of transdisciplinary skills and resources for exploring new areas of academic research and teaching. As such, the ISS graduate certificate does not lead students down an existing path of traditional academic research but rather provides them with the means for expanding the scope of their main disciplinary focus by creating new paths of their own.
