The Department of Media and Information offers an interdisciplinary and energetic learning environment united by a passion for media and information. In our state-of-the-art labs (such as the Games for Entertainment & Learning Lab, Rural Computing Consortium, and Social and Psychological Approaches to Research on Technology-Interaction Effects (SPARTIE) Lab) and centers (Quello Center for Media & Information Policy), we're researching new avenues of communication technology and computer-centered interaction. In our classrooms, our world-class, award-winning faculty teach all aspects of the vibrant media ecosystem.
We offer two B.A. degrees (Information Science and Games & Interactive Media), an M.A. degree (Media and Information) and a professional online M.S. degree (User Experience). We're a part of the jointly offered Ph.D. in Information and Media and participate in several minors.
