Our Master of Science in Informatics program provides multiple paths to innovation that touch on the technological, social, and scientific impact of information technology. Informatics can encompass complex systems, proactive health informatics, human-computer interaction design, music informatics, intelligent and interactive systems, computing, culture, and society, and virtual heritage, and it allows students to integrate their technical skills and computer science methods with an array of disciplines.
Beyond the pursuit of a degree, our Masters of Informatics track is designed for students who are thinking about entering a specific Ph.D. track. Each M.S. in informatics student will be assigned a faculty advisor who will help the student decide if the Ph.D. in informatics track is right for them. Students are required to complete 36 credit hours, 27 of which must be taken in approved Informatics courses, and the program is designed to be competed in four semesters. In certain circumstances, credits for the M.S. in Informatics may be transferred to the Ph.D. program. The courses taken must have a coherent focus within the general field of informatics.
If you’re thinking about pursuing a Ph.D. in Informatics, the M.S. in Informatics can help you discover your path. We offer a wide range of multidisciplinary classes that will allow you to forge your future while also building the skills you need to be successful in industry or academia.
