The School of Information Studies offers a bachelor of science degree (B.S.) in Innovation, Society, and Technology. This program is for students interested in research, innovation, and social justice in the impact of technology in society.
The recent article “A Crisis of Ethics in Technology Innovation”, MIT Sloan Management Review, March 2020 demonstrates the need for individuals with a background in ethics and social justice in the information technology industry. This degree program satisfies student demand at the Syracuse University School of Information Studies (iSchool) for a general program in information studies that provides research-focused students the opportunity to gain expertise in the modern impact and societal challenges of information technology.
Students in this program will receive coursework in information studies, information innovation, information technology, and information in society. Graduates may continue their studies in a graduate program or provide expertise in the societal impacts of technology at an organization.
