Prospective Employers

Bachelor of Arts Information Studies

In today's information age, all professions are driven by the creation, use, and transfer of knowledge. The Information Studies degree focuses on how information impacts societal issues; governmental regulation, policy, and economics; and I.T. systems design, implementation, and management.

The Bachelor of Arts Information Studies is an interdisciplinary degree designed to prepare students to explore and analyze information needs, and deploy appropriate and effective approaches to satisfying those needs. The central theme of the degree is facilitating the link between people and the information they need to succeed.

Information professionals work in environments where they:

  • Communicate effectively between IT and other areas of an organization
  • Analyze and mitigate risk
  • Lead and manage groups of professionals
  • Design and implement IT infrastructure
  • Monitor unexpected issues in a dynamic work environment

The BAIS degree educates students through coursework that exposes them to multiple disciplines within the College of Arts and Sciences. BAIS prepares students to work in a dynamic technical environment as well as think critically to solve a wide array of issues. The degree also provides internship opportunities that give students first-hand experiences in the field.
