Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems

The Computer and Mathematical Sciences Department offers Bachelor of Science degrees in computer science and computer information systems, management information systems as well as mathematics. The degrees provide a liberal arts education while emphasizing preparation for either graduate school or a rewarding career. Students are provided with a rigorous theoretical background coupled with practical and essential skills to begin either a rewarding career in the computer field or advanced studies in graduate school. The programs reflect important trends and developments in the computer field.

The computer degree programs are based on Computing Curricula 2001 prepared by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the IEEE Computer Society. The computer science degree has a significant mathematics component while the computer information systems and management information systems degrees require several business courses. The degrees provide a wide variety of elective courses that allow the student to tailor a program of study to match their interests.

Students majoring in Computer Science, Computer Information Systems or Management Information Systems are required to purchase a laptop computer no later than the semester in which they enroll in CISS 245 Advanced Programming.
