The College of Informatics offers a contemporary perspective on the disciplines that have information at their core. We are home to the departments of communication, computer science, and business informatics. Through our outreach arm, the Center for Applied Informatics, our students have the opportunity to work with companies and other organizations on cutting-edge projects.

The college offers twelve bachelor’s degrees, five master’s degrees, and a variety of certificates, both graduate and undergraduate. Several of our programs are available in a variety of forms, including traditional face-to-face, fully online, and hybrid formats. Many of them accommodate working professionals who are only available for coursework in the evening and on weekends. Graduate degree programs have program specific advisors and graduate program directors.

We have energetic faculty who have a passion for teaching, who are dedicated researchers, and who have a strong sense of civic engagement. Many faculty have industry experience in their discipline.

Our home is NKU’s state-of-the-art informatics center, Griffin Hall. In this open and social space, students have the opportunity to use the newest technologies and collaborate in innovative ways.

Above all, we embrace a culture of silo-breaking transdisciplinarity. In other words, the College of Informatics is not an island. We work together with all the other colleges on campus to advance the full range of NKU’s mission. Informatics is networked into almost anything you can imagine, and we invite everyone to connect to us and explore.
