Computer Information Systems Program Description

The Computer Information Systems (CIS) major is designed for the student who is interested in pursuing a technical career in support of organizations. Employers are seeking highly skilled technology professionals who know how to utilize technology to improve the organization's competitive edge. This major consists of core courses in applied programming, network, and database design followed by an in depth career focused track in software design, network design, computer forensics, or computer simulation and game design. Students choose upper level electives in leading technology subjects of the day to round out their portfolio of skills. The program's in depth practical application of computer technology prepares the graduate to enter the workplace as a well-versed technology professional. Many graduates of this bachelor's degree program elect to continue their education at the graduate level by pursuing a Masters in Business and Technology Management or a Masters in Advanced Information Technologies.

CIS and BIS students will develop a portfolio of essential skills valued by employers. They will become problem-solvers who know how to think analytically, assess business problems, and design the best technology solutions.

Please note that not all courses are offered in the accelerated format.
