Information Studies

Programme profile

The Information Studies Programme studies the relationship between information technology and people. Information studies is a humanistic field of inquiry which investigates the role of technology in people's daily lives and in interpersonal communication, as well as the interaction between people and technology. The interdisciplinary field of information studies draws on research on organisations, communication, IT, design, society and technology.

The programme’s research activities cover areas such as health IT, interaction processes, system development, interface culture, surveillance, IT in urban spaces, and IT and business.

The research environment

The Information Studies Programme was established at AU  in 1986 and has the longest tradition of research and education in this field in Denmark. The research environment features strong research competencies in the areas of interaction design, STS (Science-Technology-Society) studies and digital design.

The field of information studies is aimed at creating productive links between  theory and practice in society through cooperation and interventions.  The Information Studies Programme at  is one of the country’s strongest centres for promoting this aim. Information Studies not only offers a wide range of IT and media degree programmes, it also has close links to other businesses and programmes in IT City Katrinebjerg. The programme is located in INCUBA  Park, which is also home to B&O, Google, and the Alexandra Institute, a non-profit company which works with application oriented IT research.
