The University of Texas at Austin's School of Information (iSchool) is seeking talented prospective students to join its Ph.D. Program!

We seek to engage the best and brightest people who thrive on challenges to join our Ph.D. program and help shape the future of research in Information Studies. Our research mission is to better support human activities in the digital age by harnessing the extraordinary scale and complexity of information, discovering the principles and processes to manage it, and leveraging information to enhance our daily lives. We seek to design information management solutions that are accessible, useful, usable, and sustainable. To increase our scientific understanding of the role and impact of information in all human endeavors, we study problems and develop solutions for better information design, management, organization, preservation, and retrieval.


For best consideration for Fall 2016 admission, application materials should be received by November 15, 2015. Applications received after that date may be reviewed depending on the availability of funding.


Beyond our top-ranked international graduate program, UT Austin is one of the world's premier research universities and is located in one of the USA's most vibrant cities in which to live and work: Austin, TX.


According to Forbes magazine, Austin "boasts the strongest expansion in tech sector employment of any of the nation’s 52 largest metropolitan areas from 2004 to 2014, 74%, as well as 36% growth in STEM jobs, the fourth-highest growth rate in the country."


Our flexible curriculum allows students to tailor their individual programs of study in order to meet each student's diverse research interests, preparing all students to become high quality, high-impact researchers in their targeted areas of interest.

Our School has a strong tradition of fully supporting our Ph.D. students throughout their time in the department, through a combination of Teaching Assistantships, Research Assistantships, prestigious external scholarships and, in later years, teaching positions as Assistant Instructors. Though exact funding levels cannot be projected into the future, the school is committed to supporting all its doctoral students with tuition, health insurance, and a living stipend.

Our university’s motto is that, “What Starts Here Changes the World”, and our Ph.D. program will challenge you to do cutting-edge research. We hope you will join us in our mission to drive new research that truly changes the world and develops the new technologies of tomorrow.

We will be hosting an online information session on Monday, October 26 at 3 pm. To learn more about all of our upcoming on-campus and online events, please see:


We're eager to answer your questions about our program, so if you have any questions about the program, please contact Dr. Ken Fleischmann at kfleisch at ischool.utexas.edu<mailto:kfleisch at ischool.utexas.edu> prior to the information sessions and we’ll try to address your questions in both sessions.
