Minor in Human-Centered Computing

Technology doesn’t exist in a vacuum—it’s developed and changed by people, and in turn, people are changed by technology. This minor explores the social and cultural aspects of informatics and computing, including the role of design in the creation of new technology, human-computer interaction, multimedia technology, and the legal, ethical, and organizational implications of technology.

Attention, informatics students! This minor also fulfills the requirements for the human-centered computing cognate.

Requirements are listed in the School of Informatics and Computing undergraduate academic bulletin. Students should pursue the academic requirements of the year that they entered IU. The academic requirements outlined in the academic bulletin in effect at the time of your matriculation will remain the same throughout your degree program, assuming you graduate within eight years.
