Academics - Undergraduate - Information Science BS

The program combines concepts and skills from computer science, behavioral and social sciences, and system design into an integrated curriculum that is people-centered. The coursework covers information architecture; information system design and development; programming and software design; database design; systems and networks; information resource management; social informatics; quantitative and qualitative research methods; and human-computer interaction.

Although there is no sharp boundary between Computer Science and Information Science, it may be said that CS is concerned with building the software and services infrastructure used by people and organizations worldwide, whereas IS is concerned with the information and software needs of a particular business, health-care provider, government agency, or non-profit.
