Information Systems Minor
The School of Information and Library Science (SILS) was founded in 1931 and is one of the most highly-regarded graduate programs in the nation. The School first offered a minor in information systems in 1997, and initiated a major in information science in 2003. UNC-Chapel Hill is the only university in the state offering a bachelor’s degree in information science and is one of only a handful of schools nationwide offering such a program.
The minor is designed for undergraduate students who wish to develop knowledge and skills in the use and design of information systems. It provides students with an understanding of computing, networking, multimedia, electronic information resources and the Internet that can be used to solve problems in a variety of contexts. The minor complements the student's major field of study by offering knowledge, skills, and experience using these technologies and will require fifteen hours of credit to complete.
The application for the minor is now OPEN until March 1, 2013.
