Academics

The Master of Science in Informatics program includes core foundational courses as well as specialized classes that focus on specific domains such as health, sports, or cybersecurity.

All course work will focus on human/computer interaction and the best ways to meet the needs of the end user.

Course work (18 units) will provide the foundations and skills needed to:

  • Manage and secure electronic records;
  • Set up secure digital assets management systems (DAM) working with metadata, workflow, taxonomy, and data security of digital assets;
  • Manage projects: people, timelines, resources, goals and outcomes.

Students will have an opportunity to apply the Informatics skill set in one of three contexts with an additional 9 units focused on end users within a specialized domain, such as:

  • Health (including Telehealth)
  • Sports
  • Cybersecurity and Privacy  

Please note classes for these specializations may not always be available. Be sure to consult the Course Rotations to plan your schedule and area of specialization.

The culminating requirement for all students is an Organizational Consulting project (3 units) where students will apply the knowledge and skills developed in the program to address a specific problem in their chosen specialized domain (such as health or sports).
