Information Systems

To earn a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems, students must complete at least 124 credits and meet specific requirements, as outlined in the University catalog requirements for a BS Degree in Information Systems. The core curriculum in this major consists of required courses in both computer science and business, with concentrations in business and in information systems. The business concentration consists of courses in accounting, finance, operations management, organizational behavior, and marketing. The information systems concentration consists of courses in technological problem solving, project management, and a selection from computer science courses such as algorithms, operating systems, computer architecture, artificial intelligence, computer graphics, etc. The computer science courses provide the student with expertise in programming, networks, system development, and software engineering. The business courses provide the student with expertise in management and financial matters and in technology deployment issues. Because this major already includes many courses in both computer science and management information systems, students in this major are not permitted to minor in CIS or MIS.
