Programs in the Department of Information Systems
The Information Systems program is designed to prepare students for computer-related careers in business and government. Students are taught the professional skills of a programmer/analyst such as systems development methods, programming languages, and database processing. Additional topics covered are client/server systems, decision support systems, quantitative modeling techniques, user computing support and management, and information systems management. Graduates of the IS program will have a good understanding of both business operations and computer-based information systems. They are qualified for a wide range of positions requiring this combination of knowledge.
Students having a GPA of at least 2.65 and satisfying the other requirements for admission to the major or minor in business will be admitted. Students are advised to take IS 340 class as early as possible before they are admitted to the major.
