About

Connecting people, information, and technology is at the core of the academic and research programs here at the School of Computing and Information. We offer a master degree in Information Science at the University of Pittsburgh.  

Overview

About 

The Master of Science in Information Science (MSIS) degree program from the University of Pittsburgh builds on that by preparing students for careers as information professionals, including systems analysts and designers, database developers and managers, information security experts, and more. 

This 36-credit program can be completed in three semesters (depending upon course schedules) of full-time study or as many as four years of part-time study.

The MSIS program offers a rigorous course of study that is also flexible, so that the specific needs of individual students can be met. The School allows you to design a course of study under the direction of your advisor that meets your individual needs. Many students use this general track option to sample multiple areas of the curriculum, while other students choose to focus on a defined specialization.

Our specializations—big data analytics, database and web systems, geoinformatics, human-centered computing, information security, and telecommunications and distributed systems—have been created to meet the specific needs of different industry and academic sectors, while still providing the necessary foundational knowledge of the general program of study.
