iSchool / Whitman Dual Program

One of the more popular and complementary choices in dual majors is the joint Whitman/School of Information Studies (iSchool) degree. Approximately 10 percent of students in the iSchool choose to pursue a dual major with Whitman.

Should you decide to pursue a dual major, you will develop a working knowledge of business combined with a technical training in information systems, setting you apart from traditional management students. The many opportunities to gain hands-on experience and expert perspectives, combined with comprehensive and timely coursework offered at Whitman and the iSchool, will help you build a compelling resume. 

You may apply directly to the dual program as an incoming first-year student when applying to Syracuse University or you can apply to add the dual program later as an enrolled Syracuse University student. The iSchool major is information management & technology. All eight Whitman majors pair naturally with the major in the School of Information Studies.

Whitman majors are:

  • Accounting
  • Business Analytics
  • Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises
  • Finance
  • Management
  • Marketing Management
  • Real Estate
  • Retail Management
  • Supply Chain Management

iSchool concentrations are:

  • Data Analytics
  • Digital Retail Strategies
  • Information Security
  • Network Management
  • Project Management
  • Web Design and Management

Students must fulfill the degree requirements for both schools and complete a minimum of 141 credits. With AP and/or transfer credit, students typically still graduate in four years. After completing the program, students receive a bachelor’s degree (one diploma) awarded by both schools. The iSchool is the home college for dually enrolled students.
