28.3 Opportunity to learn about the SLIS PhD program at UW-Madison

LIS has a lot in common with Rhetoric, I have discovered.

Opportunity to learn about the SLIS PhD program at UW-Madison

Tuesday, September 2, 2008 at 4:03pm
The School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison cordially invites individuals who are interested in pursuing doctoral studies in library and information studies for an informational campus visit. The Prospective Doctoral Student Campus Visit will be held October 16-17, 2008.

During the Prospective Doctoral Student Campus Visit, potential students will have the opportunity to converse with faculty, staff, and students about pursuing a PhD in SLIS, learn about campus resources, and participate in a SLIS class seminar. In addition, potential students can tour campus and the highly livable and progressive city of Madison, Wisconsin.

To apply to attend the Prospective Doctoral Student Campus Visit, send an email by September 15 including the following: name, contact information (address, phone, and email), current position, resume, a brief statement about why you are interested in pursuing doctoral studies in library and information studies, and a brief description of your areas of research interest. (If you are interested in archival research, please see the information below.) Please send your information and any questions you may have to Kate H. Vo Thi-Beard, coordinator, via e-mail at vothibeard@wisc.edu. Spaces are limited and we recommend you send in your applications as soon as possible. Partial funding may be available for students needing assistance to attend the Visit day.

NOTE: Travel and lodging grants to attend the Prospective Doctoral Student Campus Visit and waiver of the graduate school application fee may be available for students from underrepresented groups. Please ask Kate for more information about travel and lodging grants in your email.
