Why Information Sciences: Information Science makes it possible for me to embrace the new technologies while thinking critically about how it would shape our society, and empower the society using information science. Since I was young, I have always been exploring what I am interested in doing. However, I could not clearly answer this question when I was filling out my college application. I could conclude that I was curious about how the world works, so I chose Global Studies as my major. As I gradually built up my understanding of the world in global studies class, I learned about the bittersweet world. I found a beautiful landscape in front of me, but I need to know more than what the textbook told me. I wanted to explore more using the Internet. I needed to learn about how to find and process information and how technology shapes the 21st century. I started to realize the power of information and the data. Information Science would be a perfect fit because it has courses about collecting and interpreting data and courses that answers my questions about how technologies change the world. In the future, I hope that I could use what I learned in Information Science to solve problems we face in our society.
