Ph.D. Program

Information Security is a multi-disciplinary interest group of faculty and students who work together across department lines. Students can join by applying to the Computer Science Department. All of our students receive support, including an annual stipend, in the form of external and internal competitive fellowships, research fellowships, or teaching fellowships. As a PhD candidate, you will share in the excitement of discovery as you collaborate with our faculty on cutting edge research. You also will acquire strong, independent research skills and begin to develop your own skills and reputation as a member of the research community.

You will find the work here challenging and personally rewarding. Students who complete our PhD program are well-prepared for careers in academia, research, government and industry. Please visit our Graduate Admissions Information page for application requirements, deadlines, and other important information.
