Widener’s state-of-the-art  academic building to be completed in 2013.

New Majors, New Building

Informatics. It's an new major at Widener that combines the best of our communication studies and computer science majors. In fact,  we expect our informatics program to be on the leading-edge of new Information Age careers.

So we're constructing a new 28,500 square-foot, three-story building to house everything it will take to provide our students with an innovative experience: TV studio, video editing suites, a focus group room for conducting market research,  computer labs for designing games and multimedia training; it will serve as a conference facility too.

Best of all, in keeping with our core Widener values, there will be plenty of space for students and faculty to work side-by-side on lab projects, seminars, and workshops.
