Computer Information Systems

Degree Type: Certificate of Applied Science

The Certificate of Applied Science designed to attract students who desire to learn about technology as it relates to business rather than from a scientific perspective.

After graduation, a student will be able to go directly into the workforce into various computer-related fields, or the student may choose to continue their educational path at a higher institution in Computer Information Systems or Management Information Systems.

All students completing 27 credit hours of course work in the Computer Information Systems program and meeting all relevant university requirements will be awarded a Certificate in Computer Information Systems.  Any elective credit hours taken can be satisfied with CIS courses or CMPS courses or Business Management courses.  Any student seeking a Computer Information System certificate along with an AS in Business Administration or AS in Computer Science will have to meet the general education requirement only once.  All prerequisites are requirements.  NOTE: Students enrolled in the Computer Information Systems curriculum can take any programming courses in the Computer Science (CMPS) curriculum or programming courses in the Web Development (CWEB) curriculum to satisfy the CIS electives requirement.
