Become an information professional

At the McGill School of Information Studies we seek to find better ways to organize,access, disseminate, use and preserve information and recorded knowledge. Our research and teaching expertise spans such areas as user-centred design, usability, information security, data mining, digital curation, and knowledge management. 

Programs

SIS offers an ALA-accredited master’s program that represents an effective balance between theory and practice. Students can work on real-world problems in their courses and can also elect to participate in our practicum course, which offers a supervised learning opportunity in an information organization for academic credit.

Director's Message

SIS offers a dynamic learning environment which keeps pace with the rapidly evolving and expanding field of information studies.  Our diverse faculty positions itself under the broad area of human information interaction (HII) – the dynamic interface between end users and information and communication technologies (ICTs).
