Doctorate of Computer Science - Emerging Media

Emerging Media is a multidisciplinary area that integrates content, communication, collaboration and creativity into strategies for effective business, entertainment, education and research use. The DCS in Emerging Media is offered through the CTU Institute for Advanced Studies to professionals interested in examining how social networks, new media, web science and virtual worlds will shape the future by bringing people, information and technology together.

This 3-year Doctoral program focuses on the strategies and tactics needed to use Web technologies for the development of virtual communities, social networks, grassroots broadcasting, games and simulations, Web 2.0 tools, virtual economies and to manage security risks, such as information accountability and web privacy strategies. It includes twelve 5-credit instructional courses, taken one per quarter for three years, plus a research and writing class taken each quarter. Each class is taken online. Twice each year, students attend an intensive residential symposium lasting four and a half days.

The curriculum examines how increasingly popular virtual communities can be woven into successful business strategies. Students will be challenged to investigate the strategic, social and financial implications of emerging media. They will also be required to communicate their research results and prepare them for publication.
