The Information Systems minor is designed for those students interested in business-oriented, computer technology-based information resource systems. Students learn about both business processes and the computer technology used to support and enhance those processes.
The minor integrates general business and management knowledge with expertise in computer technology (including programming, database, web, and networking) to produce the knowledge and skills necessary to obtain employment in a competitive job market, start a business, or pursue further education in graduate and professional degree programs. Career choices for an information systems major range from very technical positions in network administration or programming to more communication-oriented employment in training or help desk support. A few of the possibilities include systems analyst, network administration support, web/internet designer, computer trainer, systems designer/programmer, and technical sales.
