Overview of the School of Information

The iSchool has a long-standing history of innovation and embracing new ideas. We offered the first BS Information Technology degree in the country and one of the first BS Human-Centered Computing degrees. The iSchool offers more online degrees, more interdisciplinary degrees, and more degrees at RIT global campuses than any other unit in the university. In addition, the iSchool has served as an incubator for nationally acclaimed programs in Computing Security and Game Design and Development, now offered through other college units. The iSchool has also been home to recipients of the university’s top teaching award, top scholarship award, ACM Distinguished Members and Fellows, and worldwide professional society leaders.


The Golisano College is one of the most comprehensive computing colleges in the nation, and as such, iSchool researchers are producing groundbreaking work in a number of fields including:
