The case for interdisciplinary study is discussed in the context of an example of a recently formalized interdisciplinary doctoral program in communication and information sciences at the University of Hawaii-Manoa. Interdisciplinary study is seen as necessary in the acquisition of knowledge especially as it pertains to the study of information technologies and human communication endeavors. Understanding a broad range of conceptual ideas across a number of more traditional disciplines is regarded as a must to understanding the implications of the information age more fully. Advantages and disadvantages of such a study strategy are presented within the organizational structure and processes of the modern day university.<
