About Texts and Technology

The Ph.D. in Texts and Technology program is part of a growing interdisciplinary field combining scholarly study, creative production, and assessment of digital media texts. The curriculum emphasizes theory and practice in new media supplemented by historical grounding in pre-digital media studies. This innovative program prepares students for research, teaching, and program development.  Areas of research and production include digital archiving and editing, asset management, predictive modeling, information architecture, visualization, web design, distributed education, and game design.  Graduates from the Texts and Technology program have gone on to such positions as: Assistant Professor of English, Assistant Professor of Digital Media, Director of Course Design and Production, Dean of Distance Learning, and Managing Editor.
