Master of Science in Informatics

Our Master of Science in Informatics program provides multiple paths to advanced study on the technological, social, and scientific impact of information technology.  We offer a wide range of multidisciplinary classes that will allow a student to forge their future while also building the skills they need to be successful in industry or academia.

Beyond the pursuit of a degree, our Masters of Informatics track is designed for students who are thinking about entering a specific Ph.D. track. Each M.S. in Informatics student is assigned a faculty advisor who will help the student decide if the Ph.D. in Informatics track is right for them.  In certain circumstances, credits for the M.S. in Informatics may be transferred to the Ph.D. program.  The courses taken must have a coherent focus within the general field of Informatics.


The student's advisor and the Informatics Director of Graduate Studies must approve all coursework prior to taking the course.

To receive the M.S. Informatics degree from Indiana University School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering, the student must:

  • Complete 36 credit hours - 27 credit hours of Informatics courses and nine (9) credit hours of electives of any graduate level coursework within or outside the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering with no individual course grade below a C (2.0)
  • Maintain a minimum B (3.0) GPA
  • Complete the course requirements as stated in the handbook for the term of matriculation
  • Meet all of the above requirements within five (5) calendar years of initial matriculation


The minimum overall GPA of a grade of B (3.0) for all graduate courses is required.  A student whose semester GPA fall below a grade of B (3.0) will be put on probation.  The student must raise their semester and cumulative GPA to B (3.0) or higher by the end of the following semester.  Failure to do so may result in academic dismissal from the program. A student whose cumulative GPA falls below a grade of B (3.0) for two consecutive semesters (excluding summer) may result in academic dismissal from the program.
