Abstract:This study compares the master’s degree curricula of 10 iSchools in the US and 10 iSchools in China by categorizing and analyzing the text of 667 course titles harvested from publicly available websites. The results show that the US offers more courses per school and a wider range of courses. While the schools share a number of similar topics, there are significant differences between the curricula in US and Chinese iSchools in the areas of technology, management, human factors, analytics, and general information studies.
