What is information science
What could you do with a degree from one of USC's fastest-growing majors? What do information science students do? Actually, almost anything they want.
Our name — School of Library and Information Science — only begins to tell our story. From undergraduate to doctoral degrees, we explore information — where you find it, how you extract it, how you preserve it, how you put it to use. Traditional libraries are defying tradition and becoming community hubs for information and interaction. Information management is a key to success in business, industry, government, politics, commerce, education and, well, we could go on. You could, too.
One of the newest majors at the university, our information science major focuses on bridging the gap between information, technology, and people.
We offer a doctoral program of study in library and information Science.
The specialist is a post-master's degree which gives students an opportunity to revitalize and update their knowledge and skills.
