UTK’s School of Information Sciences (SIS) offers most classes via distance education technology utilizing synchronous class meetings and course management systems. The technology allows students with diverse needs to pursue the M.S. in Information Sciences at a distance. As an American Library Association (ALA) accredited school, SIS is recognized as a top sixteen school by U.S. News and World Report. The faculty has an extraordinary list of accomplishments including being recognized as the number one information science school in the U.S. with respect to number of articles published per faculty member.
