Information Systems Requirements

Information systems (IS) are of vital importance to organizations and IS professionals fill key roles such as systems analysts and designers, database administrators, network administrators, cybersecurity officers, web designers, project managers, software testers, and technical writers. They think strategically about selecting, deploying and utilizing information technology for organizational efficiency and competitive advantage. The B.S. in IS program provides students with a foundation in both the functional areas of business and in computing technologies. This unique blend enables graduates to appreciate the strategic role of technology, formulate a vision for IS, and communicate that vision to stakeholders. Students are prepared to pursue both technical and managerial careers incorporating leading edge technologies in public and private organizations. Related Minors include Cybersecurity, Accounting, and Digital Marketing Communications.

The requirements for a B.S. in IS include the  general education requirements, the  business course requirements and 21-24 hours in IS as specified below. All classes must have a grade of C- or better to be eligible. Students may not take more than 24 hours in IS counted toward the 120 hours necessary for graduation.  Download the  Four-Year Study Plan.
