The Master of Science in Informatics consists of 30 credit hours beyond the baccalaureate degree including a minimum of eight required courses (24 credit hours) and six credit hours of thesis or independent study. Two tracks of study are available to students: Health Information Management (HIM) and Information Resource Management (IRM). As an academic discipline, informatics involves the study of information and the application of information technology to the acquisition, processing, management and utilization of information. We also study how information technology has changed, and is changing, society, culture, and the workplace. Courses are entirely online or hybrid (requiring a few live meetings). This program is designed for the adult learner and working professional. Students may attend live and teleconference class meetings in Greenville or Spartanburg or by other special arrangement (for students not in the Upstate South Carolina area). The MS in Informatics is important for your career because employers are looking for portable and flexible professionals with technology-intensive graduate education to hire and promote into middle and upper management positions.
