Computer Information Systems Major

The Computer Information Systems (CIS) major provides students with a strong knowledge base and essential technology skills for developing, implementing and managing information technology and information systems solutions in a variety of domains. Computer Information Systems professionals bridge the gap between computing technologies and real-world applications by focusing on the integration of technological solutions with business processes to meet the information and decision-support needs of organizations. A major in Computer Information Systems prepares students for career opportunities and graduate studies in Computer Information Systems, Business Analytics, Software and Applications (Apps) Development, Web Development, Database Administration, Information Security, Business Intelligence, and Project Management.

A total of 66 semester hours is required for the Computer Information Systems major: 6 hours in Mathematics, 12 hours in core areas of Business Administration (BA), 30 hours in core areas of Computer Information Systems (CIS), and 18 hours in selected CIS, BA and other electives.
