About Us

The University of California Berkeley School of Information (I School) prepares leaders and pioneers solutions to the challenges of transforming information — ubiquitous, abundant, and evolving — into knowledge.

The I School offers two degree programs: a professional master's degree and an academic doctoral degree.

The Master of Information Management and Systems (MIMS) program is a two-year full-time program, designed to train students in the skills needed to succeed as information professionals. Such a profession is inherently interdisciplinary, requiring aspects of computer science, cognitive science, psychology and sociology, economics, business, law, library/information studies, and communications.

The I School's doctoral program in Information Management & Systems offers the resources, support, and inspiration that scholars need to pursue new ideas, conduct their own research, and shape the evolving relationship between people and information around the world.
