The School of Information is both UC Berkeley’s newest and its smallest school. Located in the center of campus, the I School is a graduate research and education community committed to expanding access to information and to improving its usability, reliability, and credibility while preserving security and privacy. This requires the insights of scholars from diverse fields — information and computer science, design, social sciences, management, law, and policy.
The I School offers a professional master’s degree and an academic doctoral degree. Our master’s program trains students for careers as information professionals and emphasizes small classes and project-based learning. Our Ph.D. program equips scholars to develop solutions and shape policies that influence how people seek, use, and share information.
