Bachelor of Science in Information Science (BSIS)
The Bachelor of Science in Information Science major, also known as InfoSci, is a STEM Designated degree program, that provides students with the skills to anticipate consequences of new information technologies, systems, services and resources. The program prepares students to design solutions, create systems, and lead teams that bring together information, technology, and people to meet critical individual, organizational, and societal needs. Technical skills such as database design, information architecture, web and mobile development, and data analytics are uniquely combined with the social sciences, leadership, design, and the humanities. Through coursework, internships, and networking, students will build careers that place them in leadership roles in information management, information technology, user-centered design, data analytics, and more.
The InfoSci undergraduate program is offered in its entirety at the University of Maryland College Park campus. The program is also offered to transfer students, who have completed their associates degree or 60 college credits, as a full-time 4-semester (2 year) preset course track at the Shady Grove campus.
