Master of Science in Computer Information Systems
To be a leader in computer communications takes a lot more than technical know-how. It takes the ability to see the big picture—to identify and evaluate an organization’s needs, then translate those needs into systems that work. Successful computer experts manage people and information, and communicate effectively throughout today’s complicated workplaces.
That’s why our master’s program in computer information systems covers networking and programming … and much more. With serious students and talented professors, you’ll become partners in pursuit of learning, whether you complete the program entirely online or follow a “hybrid” format. You’ll learn the ins and outs of WANs, LANs, distributed databases, client server systems, and application and web programming. You’ll also hone critical management and interpersonal skills, examine the developing field’s urgent ethical questions, and prepare to step with confidence into a life of professional leadership.
This 10-course, two-year program may be completed online or through a combination of online and on-campus work (the “hybrid” format). Online and hybrid courses run simultaneously, and all online students are welcome to visit campus for classes or meetings if they wish. Built on a cohort (team-focused) model, the program embraces the College’s belief that students play a significant role in supporting one another’s learning, motivation, and success.
