The iSchool, College of Information Science and Technology

The iSchool, College of Information Science and Technology educates interdisciplinary professionals to provide information services and systems to meet a wide range of needs. The iSchool complements its educational programs with research that increases the benefits of information science and technology for all sectors of society.

In fall 2013, The  iSchool, College of Information Science and Technology became part of Drexel’s new College of Computing & Informatics (CCI), which combines the core strengths and assets of Drexel’s many undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs in computing and informatics that are currently offered in three different colleges. The College of Computing & Informatics, led by founding Dean David E. Fenske, serves as a hub for multi-disciplinary computing and informatics activities by uniting the faculty, professional staff, and students from the former College of Information Science and Technology (the iSchool), the Department of Computer Science in the College of Engineering and the Department of Computing and Security Technology in Goodwin College of Professional Studies.

Current students are continuing in their respective colleges/schools for academic year 2013-14, and will continue on their current curriculum trajectory. All students in the academic units in the iSchool, Department of Computer Science, and the Computing and Security Technology program will be matriculated in the new College beginning in the fall 2014 quarter. 

About the College

Founded in 1892, the iSchool offers programs leading to a Master of Science (Library and Information Science), a Master of Science in Information Systems, a Master of Science in Software Engineering, a Master of Science in Health Informatics, and a PhD in Information Studies. The MS in Health Informatics is a collaborative effort with the College of Medicine and the College of Nursing and Health Professions.

All four master's degree programs are offered online or on campus (the PhD in information studies is only available on campus). The College also administers the information science and technology track of the University's multidisciplinary MS in Software Engineering (MSSE) degree. Additionally, the College offers advanced certificate opportunities for librarians and information specialists, and terminal experts in related fields to update their education or develop new specialties.

The College of Information Science and Technology is also known as the iSchool. This identity highlights the College’s participation in the iSchools Caucus and its status as a founding member of the organization. The iSchools Caucus is an international alliance of library, information science and information system schools, the purpose of which is to raise awareness and understanding of the information sciences as a cutting-edge and progressive field of study.

Deadlines for applications to the iSchool differ from those of the University. Applicants to degree programs must take the Graduate Record Examination and have the scores sent to Drexel University. See the iSchool's Admission web page for specific deadlines.

Although enrollment in the full-time programs is recommended whenever possible, part-time study is common. Courses are typically offered in the evening, online, and occasionally on Saturdays.

Scores for the GRE General Test are required for all master's and PhD applicants. Master's applicants will be automatically reviewed for a GRE waiver at the College's discretion based on a previous degree GPA. Generally the GPA threshold needed to receive a waiver is an overall 3.2 cum GPA or a half cum of a 3.2 on a 4.0 scale. Exceptions may apply.

Doctoral students must enroll as full-time students for at least three consecutive terms. Students may be admitted to the program for part-time study. All applicants to the PhD program are required to take the General (Aptitude) Test of the GRE. PhD applicants are not eligible for a waiver of the GRE requirement.

The standard requirement for the MS or MSIS degree is 45 credits. Students should allow approximately five to eight terms to complete the program.

In addition to the above-mentioned requirements, prospective MS, MSIS, and MSHI students must also complete the Credit for Work Experience form. This form can be found in the Admissions Requirements section of each program on the iSchool website. (This form must be completed and returned for an application to be considered complete regardless of whether or not the student is requesting Credit for Work Experience.)

All entering MS students must have a demonstrated competency in the use of basic desktop software.

MSIS and MSSE applicants should have a strong technical background either through education or work experience.

Although the time limit set by the University for completion of any degree is seven years, the iSchool strongly recommends that part-time students complete the master’s degree in no more than four years, for a meaningful and cohesive educational experience. On average, most part-time students complete the program in two to three years.
