Department of Information Studies (DIS)

The UCL Department of Information Studies offers postgraduate qualifications and training for all the information professions.


We are the only department in the UK which holds together in one place programmes in library and information studies, information science, archives and records management, publishing, and digital humanities. Our modules are also open to people wishing to update or fill-in gaps in their professional skills.


In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF2014) 29% of our research was judged to be world leading, and a further 39% internationally excellent.
