The undergraduate minor in Information Systems requires that students earn 15 credits of approved courses, receiving C grades or higher. Students enrolled in the minor must take INLS 201, 161, 382, and 523, described below. In addition, the student will take the remaining 3 credits as an elective. The elective may be an INLS course numbered below 699 or a course from outside of SILS of use/interest to the student and relevant to the minor.  All electives, including SILS courses, must be approved by SILS.

  • INLS 201 (formally 101): Foundations of Information Science*
  • INLS 161 (formally 261): Tools for Information Literacy

Note: If an understanding of the bulk of the skills taught can be demonstrated, an elective course dealing with information systems relevant to the student's interests may be substituted. The elective may be a course in his or her own discipline, INLS courses, or simply a course of use/interest to the student that is relevant to the minor. The elective must be approved by SILS.
