Applied Statistics: The Department of Statistics offers an undergraduate major program that consists of courses in applied and theoretical statistics, mathematics and computer science. A new Master's degree in Applied Statistics was created in 1985.
Community Informatics: This course of study prepares graduates for positions as public interest information professionals and technical leaders for nonprofit organizations, government agencies, community development agencies, and entrepreneurial social ventures. Community Informatics specialists are highly competitive for positions such as community network directors, corporate social responsibility managers, community digital media managers, CIOs for nonprofit organizations, and E-community builders and content managers.
Human-Computer Interaction: The principles of HCI apply to people who design technologies for work, education, and entertainment and social interaction. SI coursework prepares students by combining the theories of cognitive and social psychology, computer science, and design with practical experience. HCI students can engage in world-class research.
Social Computing: Social computing -- including online communities, social networking, and user contributed content -- has been the darling of Silicon Valley for the past several years and is the force behind Web 2.0 applications. Social computing has also gained currency in library circles, as venues such as library Web sites incorporate blogging features and sites such as LibraryThing bring recommender technologies to personal book collections.
