Undergraduate Minor

The School of Information: Science, Technology and Arts (SISTA) offers an undergraduate minor in Information Science, Technology and Arts. The minor is designed to provide students in all majors complementary experience in dealing with information—deriving it, managing it, and extracting meaning from it. Courses in the minor reflect the core classes in the BA and BS offered through SISTA, and provide opportunities to focus on discipline-specific applications of information science.
