This is a survey course covering the basics of the informatics professions. We cover some history of informatics as an academic discipline and profession, review some of the significant concepts that students can expect to cover later in the Informatics major and minor, and review the different concentrations available to Informatics students. Assessment in this course is conducted through weekly quizzes and discussion questions; a short, persuasive, group presentation; and a longer-term persuasive essay project with both individual and group components.


Restricted to undergraduates pursuing a major or minor in Informatics.

All other students will need to complete this Registration Support Questionnaire in order to request a seat in any of our classes.
