Minor in Informatics

The courses offered as informatics electives vary over time. Many courses at the 300-level or above in computer and information sciences and decision sciences can count as electives. The student should consult the informatics program director for details.

Courses may count toward the minor and at the same time satisfy particular general-education requirements of the major field of study. However, no course can count toward both a major and a minor. If a conflict occurs, students would enroll in additional replacement courses chosen in conjunction with the major field advisor and the director of informatics. Courses not listed above may be included in the course of study with permission of the director of informatics.

The minor in Informatics requires students to take three lower-level informatics courses and two upper-level informatics or upper-level elective courses from the table below. A grade of C– or higher in each course is required.

Lower-Level Courses (11-12 cr.)

Select three from the following:

  • INFO-I 101 Introduction to Informatics (4 cr.)
  • INFO-I 202 Social Informatics
  • INFO-I 210 Information Infrastructure I (4 cr.)
    (CSCI-A 201 Introduction to Programming may be substituted for those students not intending to take INFO-I 211 Information Infrastructure II)
  • INFO-I 211 Information Infrastructure II (4 cr.)

Upper-Level Courses (6 cr.)
  • Select two 300- or 400-level INFO courses
