Applied Science: Informatics

Informatics is the study and practice of creating, storing, finding, manipulating and sharing information. While Informatics does concentrate on high-level computer science topics, it moves beyond the focus on computers alone to examine computing in context.

As a student working toward a Bachelor of Applied Science with an emphasis in Informatics, you’ll develop a strong base of theoretical and practical interdisciplinary experiences. You’ll also learn core Informatics concepts, first in a discipline-independent form, then in the context of specific focus areas, including system administration, software development, information management and digital design.

This degree is designed for students transferring coursework from regionally accredited and/or military institutions. During the application process, you must submit a resume and goal statement for professional admission to the program. Before applying, we recommend discussing your background with a program adviser.
