What kind of grad program should I go to if I'm interested in the preservation of digital media archives? Museum studies? Information science? Something else entirely?

Lately, I have been considering going to grad school. I have a bachelor's in theater, and I've been working at a theater for the past 5ish years.
I've been looking at the University of Texas' School of Information Master of Science in Information Studies, but would that degree prepare me to work with digital media later? (And, I guess, analog electronic media like VHS tapes.).
Are there programs out there that specifically prepare people to work with archives that focus on electronic/digital media?
Should I just get a master's in Art History and find another way to get the preservation experience?
Is this a terrible idea in general?
Jeeze, life is full of difficult decisions. Thanks for helping with this one.
