Graduate Programs

The Syracuse University School of Information Studies (iSchool) is the original information school. Our approach stands out from other institutions that offer computer science, management, information science, and other related programs. Our focus is on users and user information needs as a starting point for integrating information and information technology into organizations.

iSchool  faculty represent  a vast array of fields and are active in research topics that reflect their diverse intellectual backgrounds and interests. Each year, our students graduate as full-fledged information professionals and consistently achieve high job placement rates in relevant fields.

Our master's degree programs are available to full-time and part-time students via online, campus-based, or blended formats. Our doctoral degree program is only available in an on-campus and full-time format; we do not offer our Ph.D. program in an online or part-time format.
