As computers and communications play progressively more subtle and significant roles in society, this program of study brings together the elements of 3 disciplines to provide students with an understanding of technical, behavioural and social aspects of information technology. This program of study is a co-operative effort of the Department of Computing and Information Science, Department of Psychology, and Department of Sociology and Anthropology. Students in this program will be advised by the program coordinator in the Department of Computing and Information Science.
