Welcome to the Rhetorics, Communication, and Information Design (RCID) doctoral program at Clemson University, in the College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities. We are seeking the top students in this evolving field who are interested in an overall balance of ecologies in rhetorics and communication with emphasis on digital information design. Our program offers a cross-cultural, transdisciplinary curriculum with a conceptual emphasis on knowing, doing, and making – or theoretical, practical and productive approaches to knowledge. Our students take positions, for the most part, in departments of English and Communication Studies, as well as departments of New Media. Our students also work in industry.
