School of Information

Connecting the world with information.

From the arts to the sciences, from work to leisure, information affects us all—and at The University of Texas at Austin’s School of Information, we seek to understand the role it plays in all human endeavors. The shaping of a new information world demands insight and guidance from information scholars, and we educate the professionals who ensure information's continuity, usability, reliability and accessibility, both now and into the future. We are a new school for a new time, and our degrees will set you on a path for a new kind of career.
