UA South Thematic: Informatics Studies Emphasis

Minor Description:

The term informatics is broadly used to describe the study and practice of creating, storing, finding, manipulating, and sharing information.  It uses computation as a universal tool to solve problems in other fields, to communicate, and to express ideas.  Informatics is not a computer science minor; rather, it focuses on computing in the interdisciplinary context of system administration, software development, information management and educational technology.

Minor Requirements:

Informatics required courses; select three courses from:  ETCV 302, 401; INFV 302, 310, 320, 401

Informatics elective courses, select three courses from: 

CSCV 335, 337, 352, 381, 460; ETCV 302, 401, 403, 404, 405, 411,: INFV 302, 310, 320, 360, 378, 379, 401, 403, 404, 405, 411,; NETV 371, 372, 378, 379


Courses in the Informatics minor are primarily offered online.  Some of the CSCV courses are offered in-person in Cochise County; however, the Computer Science Department at main campus may offer the same-numbered course in an in-person format (see CSC) to satisfy some of the elective course requirements in the minor.
