About The I School
UC Berkeley's newest school, the School of Information (I School), was created in 1994 to address one of society's most compelling challenges: the need to organize and make sense of the abundance of information that we can now collect, store, and share without regard for cost or distance. The way we organize, represent, govern, and make sense of this information will shape our ability to achieve public as well as private goals.
The I School educates professionals and scholars to understand the problems and possibilities of information, to develop models of information practice, and to design useful and usable information applications, services, and solutions. This requires insights from diverse fields. Our faculty includes scholars and professionals with deep expertise in information and computer science, social sciences, management, law, design, and policy, as well as related fields.
We offer professional master's degrees and an academic doctoral degree. Our master's program in information and cybersecurity (MICS) is an innovative part-time fully online program that trains data-savvy professionals and managers. Our on-campus master's program (MIMS) trains students for careers as information professionals and emphasizes small classes and project-based learning. Our online master's program (MIDS) is the first and only degree available completely online to train data science professionals. Our Ph.D. program equips scholars to contribute to knowledge and to the policies that influence the organization, use, and sharing of information.
Our graduates work at well-known Bay Area companies that include Apple, Google, Facebook, Salesforce, Twitter, and LinkedIn, as well as at nonprofits like Kaiser Permanente and established businesses like Wells Fargo and Chevron. Many of our graduates take advantage of the opportunity to get in on the ground floor to create or work for start-ups.
In addition to teaching responsibilities, general duties include holding office hours, grading, assigning grades, advising students, and preparing course materials.
