Full Curriculum


The Computer Information Systems Bachelor of Science degree is designed to provide students a broad range of computer programming skills.  Students will learn to work with corporate management and subject matter experts to analyze information needs and determine ways in which computer systems can be used to meet those needs.  Students will choose between four majors: Business Simulation and Computer Gaming, Database Management, Programming, and Web Design and Development. It is highly recommended that all students use open electives to complete more than one major or an additional specialty.
