Computer Science (B.A., B.S.)
Computer science students study how technology works and how computing can address even the most complicated and intricate problems. Students gain in-depth, hands-on experience in the theory and application of computing through their course work.
Game Design (B.S.)
The proposed B.S. in Game Design are currently under review by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education, and the commission expects to act on these proposals later this spring. The information related to these degrees is for planning purposes only and subject to change. See more here.
In this program, students apply tech knowledge to areas like business, telecommunications, security, or fine arts to create new uses for technology and the ways people interact with it. Students learn logical reasoning, basic programming, and data visualization, as well as human-computer interaction design and other skills that will help them put technology to better use.
Information Systems (B.S.)
The Information Systems major (IS) is offered through the Kelley School of Business. It is designed to address IT and process issues for operating and managing complex and distributed global businesses through specialized IT and business process models.
Information Systems Program
There are two undergraduate degrees offered by Kelly School of Business: Bachelor of Science in Information Systems and Bachelor of Science in Technology Management (second major only). See individual links for these degrees on this page.
Journalism, Specialization in Digital and Interactive Media (B.A.)
Digital and interactive media journalism courses integrate multimedia concepts from various disciplines outside of mass media and communications, including informatics, human-computer interaction, cognitive and perceptive psychology, and documentary filmmaking.
Recording Arts (A.S., B.S.)
This Jacobs School of Music program prepares students to work with audio recording technology. Bachelors students select an area of concentration from telecommunications, business, computer science, informatics or music (performance study, composition or electronic music).
Technology Management (2nd major only)
The technology management co-major is offered through the Kelley School of Business. It is designed for students who wish to complement a business-related major such as finance, accounting, or supply chain management with a strong information technology background.
The Bachelors of Science in Telecommunication culminates from the study of a broad range of electonic media including radio, television, cable, satellite services, telephony, multimedia and the internet. It is divided into three areas: media and society, design and production, and industry and management.
Bioinformatics (M.S., Ph.D.)
Also known as computational biology, this fast-growing field focuses on the modeling, discovery, and management of biological data.
The Biotechnology graduate program draws on major instrumentation and facility resources of the departments of molecular and cellular biochemistry, biology, chemistry, optometry, psychology, and physics, as well as the Medical Sciences Program.
This program is offered as a track of the Informatics Ph.D. Also known as chemoinformatics and chemical informatics, cheminformatics is used to improve our understanding of biological functions, develop life-saving drugs, and minimize chemicals’ environmental impact.
Computational Linguistics (M.A., Ph.D., Ph.D. Minor)
Computational linguistics is an interdisciplinary field which addresses the use of computers to process or produce human language.
Computer Science (M.S., Ph.D.)
Graduate students in Computer Science develop a deep understanding of computing theory and applications that will serve as a springboard to new discoveries. The program takes a cross-disciplinary approach, from high-performance computing, data and search, artificial intelligence, and computer security, and more.
Digital Journalism (M.A.)
This sequence begins with six credit hours of “boot camp” during the summer to build a foundation, time spent with the WTIU/WFIU news bureau, and a multi-platform capstone project.
Human-Computer Interaction Design (M.S., Ph.D.)
The human-computer interaction design program teaches HCI from the perspective of a designer, through a research-based and flexible curriculum.
Information Architecture (G.C.I.A.)
The Graduate Certificate in Information Architecture is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to the field of IA and to provide students with practical experience in its real-world applications.
Information, Communications, and Privacy Law (J.D.)
This area of focus covers information law's traditional bailiwick and also keeps up with the ways in which new technology is constantly pushing the boundaries of the law. Students interested in these fields will also have the opportunity to participate in the research initiatives of two IU research centers: the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research and the Center for Law, Ethics, and Applied Research (CLEAR) in Health Information.
Information Science (M.S.I.S.)
As corporations increase their reliance on technology, business technologists will continue to be in high demand. The Masters of Science in Information Science degree provides a business and technology foundation along with a broad knowledge of IT management strategy and project management.
Information Systems (M.P.A.)
Designed to address the growing gap between the demand for and supply of graduates with information systems skills, the concentration in information systems focuses on the application of information technology to complex problems in organizational and environmental affairs.
Instructional Systems Technology (M.S.Ed., Ed.D, Ph.D.)
Learn to design effective instructional materials that can be delivered through print, video, and computers. Students will build and test processes, products,
Library Science (M.L.S)
The MLS focuses on the evaluation, preservation, collection, organization, and access to documents and data (‘information’), and it has a strong social and cultural service and values mandate.
Music Informatics (Ph.D.)
Music informatics explores the many new applications whose study requires only the willingness to view music as data, whether in audio, graphical, performance, or symbolic form.
Scientific Computing (Ph.D. minor)
Scientific computing is an interdisciplinary, interdepartmental graduate minor recognizing important changes in science and computing that represent a powerful and essential mode of scientific research.
Security Informatics (M.S., Ph.D.)
The security informatics program offers students a new, interdisciplinary approach to information security that goes beyond technology to address the social and practical aspects of protecting data.
Studio Arts, Studio Area Digital Art (M.F.A.)
This program focuses on artistic experimentation with immersive virtual environment, mobile computing, multimedia, video, and other electronic media.
Telecommunications (M.A., M.S., Ph.D.)
This degree offers courses in promotional and marketing strategies, multimedia design, radio and television production, processes and effects, and industry and management.
