We offer three undergraduate degrees in Information Science.

Students can pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree in Information Science through the College of Arts & Sciences (BA-IS) or a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Science through the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) (BS-IS). These two degree programs are very similar, differing primarily in their associated college-level requirements.

In addition, the department offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Science, Systems, and Technology (ISST) to students in the College of Engineering (BS-ISST). This degree differs substantially from the A&S and CALS Information Science programs.

Please see the individual degree pages for more information about each program:

If you're not sure which undergraduate degree program is right for you, review the descriptions and requirements for each and then click through our Student Spotlights to read about student experiences in each program.
