Work Immersion and Interational Experiences
Information is one of the most precious commodities today and the iSchool provides interdisciplinary, collaborative experiences to keep students on top of the evolving field of information studies.
Traveling seminars through Europe and Asia give students an international perspective of information technology. Experiential immersion experiences in Silicon Valley, Chicago, New York City, the Pacific Northwest and more offer insights and connections to major information industries in all sectors of the economy: public, private, and nonprofit.
We take great pride in our renowned faculty members, who make a positive difference in everything that they do. Students and faculty learn from each other through shared intellectual experiences and appropriate curriculum collaboration across the School's degree programs.
