  25. 25. Information Studies minor Program Objectives: Students will think critically and creatively about how information is produced, organized, shared, and preserved in a variety of formats, both traditional and social, and recognize the significance of the format to communicating and accessing information; the production of knowledge and the information publication cycle are addressed. Students will explore the social and legal implications of information policy issues, intellectual property, transfer of knowledge, and copyright through a historical and contemporary lens. Students will evaluate the impact that information and information technology has on their person and society both locally and globally; issues of accessibility, digital divide, privacy, censorship, governance of WordWide Web are explored. Students will learn to navigate and participate in the information environment and utilize information technology in the creation of new products.
