About this program
The Research and Information Studies Minor explores information studies as a discipline. Students develop professional level research skills and strategies using research libraries, online databases, print and media collections, special collections and archives.
In addition to the joy of intellectual curiosity, courses cover many current issues including privacy, censorship, international sources, public communication, the evaluation of arguments and information, and the publishing industry.
This is a useful minor for students interested in continuing their post-BA studies in the fields of library science, museum work, law, writing, and professional communication.
