Information Systems degrees and programs

A degree in Information Systems not only gives graduates the ability to understand and manage current and emerging information systems, but also confers excellent technical management and communications skills. A background in Information Systems allows for a higher-level understanding of how different computer systems can talk and interface with each other – and thus facilitate and foster the spread of knowledge and ideas.

In today's mutable technological terrain, business professionals must be adept and quick to respond to new pressures and new ways of communicating. Programs within the Information Systems area build those skills in students through coursework about data technology, computer security and project management.

We offer a minor and major, along with master's degree program in information systems.
