Faculty of Information
Established in 1928 as Ontario’s first formal school of library science, the Faculty of Information has evolved continuously along with the knowledge needs of society. The iSchool offers degree programs at the undergraduate, masters and doctoral level.
Among the unique offerings of the iSchool is a joint degree program in Information Studies and Law (MISt/JD) as well as collaborative programs in: Addiction Studies; Aging and the Life Course; Book History and Print Culture; the Centre for Environment; Knowledge Media Design; and Women’s Studies. The Faculty houses the Knowledge Media Design Institute (KMDI) and administers the only English-language Master of Museum Studies program in Canada.
Just as our alumni have managed knowledge expertly through the decades, future graduates of the iSchool must address the central and defining issues of the digital age. This means educating professionals in all aspects of information analysis, organization, preservation and retrieval.
By affirming our core values of scholarship and care, we will chart pathways to the future. And as always, we will make the needs of the communities we service as professionals an integral part of our pursuit of excellence.
