The School of Information offers an interdisciplinary undergraduate concentration in Informatics, in partnership with the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) and the College of Engineering. Informatics provides solid grounding in computer programming, mathematics, and statistics, combined with study of the ethical and social science aspects of complex information systems. Informatics concentrators learn to critically analyze various approaches to processing information and develop skills to design, implement, and evaluate the next generation of information technology tools.
Four tracks of study are available within the Informatics Concentration; each is offered by a partner school or department:
Informatics students are a growing and important part of the SI community and have access to a number of SI services and resources. All Informatics students are welcome to utilize services from the SI Career Development Office and to attend SI Skills Enrichment programs. Informatics students may also join SI student groups, attend SI events, and may participate in SI Alternative Spring Break. Informatics students are included in SI email lists and are invited to School-wide functions.
Informatics students will also benefit from services and resources offered by LSA as the degree granting unit for this exciting concentration. Students in Informatics tracks sponsored by Engineering, Statistics, and Life Sciences have access to resources in those units as well.
