Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences + Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy
In our connected world, problems are complicated and hard to solve. Whether it’s a government agency, private company or non-profit, modern organizations are complex webs of systems, structures, policies and people. It takes someone who can see both the details and the big picture to plot paths forward — these are exactly the skills and perspectives you’ll develop in the Information Systems (IS) program. You’ll draw on the university’s distinct strengths in technology and business, humanities and social sciences for a truly unique and well-rounded education. And ultimately, you’ll create solutions that improve businesses, institutions and the collective social good.
