Information Systems

The Information Systems (IS) degree program combines knowledge of leading edge information technologies with an understanding of the ever changing needs of today’s dynamic business environment. As such, it attracts students who are interested in working with technology to find solutions to business problems. While a fundamental understanding of information technology is a cornerstone of the degree, an equally important and distinguishing element of the IS degree is a solid foundation in basic business functions. Students may major in IS without an area of emphasis or may select one of three emphasis areas (see below):
