Degree Information

The Department of Informatics fosters a broad and interdisciplinary view of informatics, and uses this view to serve our constituencies in teaching, research, and civic engagement. In teaching, we strive to prepare our students to become life-long learners as well as highly skilled professionals with strong technical and analytical skills that can be applied to other disciplines, such as arts & humanities, business, health sciences, natural sciences, and social sciences.
Through research, the faculty endeavors to generate new knowledge and stay current in a constantly changing social and psychological dimension of information technology. The faculty introduces research results in the classroom and laboratory, and fosters the development of undergraduate research techniques thus promoting these necessary skills in our students.
In civic engagement, we thematically link community-based research, collaborative projects, service-learning, mentored internships, reflective experiential learning and study abroad opportunities for helping our students advance on this essential learning goal.
