About Information Science at City, University of London

City's MSc Information Science is designed to provide you with a deep understanding of information systems and services, and their relevance and impact within different layers of society.

The course examines information infrastructures, communication processes, systems and services. Our course is grounded in the history and philosophy of information, embracing the legal, ethical, social and economic impact of information within specific subject domains, individual organisations, and contemporary society.

Content covers the fundamental concepts of data, information and knowledge, and builds on these to consider: metadata; database structure; information resources, retrieval, and access; measurement, analysis, and visualisation of information; preservation and security; information literacy; use of new and emergent technologies; methods of investigation; socio-cultural implications and policy formulation.

You will be equipped with insight into information flow within contemporary society, and its relevance and impact for communities. Throughout the course, there is a strong focus on technology, ethics, impact and influence of information on individuals, professions and society. Our focus is divided equally between theory and its application to practice. You will benefit from a high level of engagement with practitioners, and we are pleased to welcome many leaders in the profession as speakers on our modules.
