The School of Information Studies (SOIS) develops the skills that connect people with the information they need. We prepare professionals to be the “human side” of information technology, and to serve as leaders in knowledge-based environments. Through our innovative research and scholarship, we contribute to the international knowledge base and to our driving goal of achieving universal access to information.
SOIS enriches the information professions by recruiting students from diverse geographic, cultural, and academic backgrounds. Our programs—an undergraduate degree in Information Science and Technology, a master’s in Library and Information Science, and a Ph.D. in Information Studies—cover the full spectrum of contemporary information needs, access, and practices.
U.S. News and World Report ranks SOIS the number 15 Information School in the nation, making it Wisconsin’s premier program.
