The Graduate School of Interdisciplinary Information Studies

"We are a learning hub that cultivates data scientists with interdisciplinary insight and expertise."

The ability to select and use information is becoming a criterion for competitiveness in the information age and an essential virtue of leaders in our modern society. Vast amounts of information in various and complicated forms drive the trends of the Information Society and are crucial in the functions of state and business organizations. As we enter an evermore connected Network Society, a deeper understanding and command of the flows and content of information, its authenticity and reliability, are key issues that allow us to distinguish good data from bad data, ultimately enabling us to make informed, evidence-based decisions. CUK’s GSIIS encourages critical inquiry and interdisciplinary conversation. Our core subjects focus on understanding our present data and human environment and the acquisition of data analysis skills, such as statistical and big data analysis. Students can select their field of concentration, but convergence of the three fields is strongly encouraged.

Our educational goals

To cultivate future data scientists with a convergent mindset

To enhance a wholistic approach to information studies

Our core curriculum sets the context for information-based learning, by presenting an understanding of the present Information Society through sociological, psychological, computer science and methodological insights. Students are then encouraged to choose a field of concentration: Education Informatics, Business Informatics, and Technology Informatics & Big Data. Students can choose more than one concentration, to create their own field of convergence, such as Education Technology, Technology Business, or Education Business and so forth.
