Network Science PhD

The PhD program in network science aims to enhance our understanding of networks arising from the interplay of human behavior, sociotechnical infrastructures, information diffusion, and biological agents. This is an intrinsically multidisciplinary activity, with members of the network science community representing a wide range of fields including computer science, information science, complexity, physics, sociology, communication, organizational behavior, political science, and epidemiology. This is an interdisciplinary doctoral program focused on training students in network science across several colleges—including the College of Science, the College of Computer and Information Science, the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, Bouvé College of Health Sciences, the College of Engineering, and the College of Arts, Media and Design—with several research areas, including computational sciences, information sciences, health and life sciences, social sciences, and theoretical physics.
