Maryland (USA). – “The College of Information Studies, Maryland’s iSchool, announces a new Bachelor of Science in Information Science (BSIS) degree. Building on the iSchool’s tradition of preparing high-impact information professionals, the BSIS degree will fill a growing demand for students skilled at working with information in a variety of fields including government, healthcare, education, technology, and policy.
Dean Brian Butler described the new program as integral to the iSchool’s continued efforts: “This is our entry into undergraduate education, which is central to the mission of the University and an important part of its contribution to the state of Maryland. We are excited to join this worthwhile endeavor.”
The undergraduate program joins the three existing graduate degree programs in Human Computer Interaction, Information Management, and Library Science, as well as the PhD in Information Studies. The BSIS degree will build upon the strengths of these existing programs, bringing additional accolade to the iSchool in the wake of its recent U.S. News & World Report ranking as a top-ten information school in the country among all public universities.”
