Why Information Sciences: I think Information Sciences will give me both the technological and social, human-centered knowledge and background that I need. Technology is not deterministic and instead exists within a complex web of people, systems, and social and cultural contexts. Therefore, in order for it to be impactful and meaningful, there needs to be understanding of how it informs and relates to these things. So along with learning about network systems, databases, data processing and modeling, analytical methods, design, and such, I want to learn about how they engage with broader social systems and the human component that they ultimately are supposed to serve.
