The Computer Information Science degree program's major objective is to prepare students to meet the information technology needs and challenges of the Information Age workplace and society.
The curriculum takes a classical mathematical-approach to the discipline, providing students with the concepts, principles, and techniques required by the information technology profession.
Students learn concepts and skills needed for designing, programming, and applying information systems while also learning the theoretical and mathematical foundations of computer science.
The core of the program emphasizes computer software programming, algorithm design, and system development. Upon graduation, students are prepared for careers in software application programming, software engineering, and system development and implementation, as well as graduate studies.
Special RequirementsStudents need to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 in all required courses in the major. Those students who drop below this GPA will be placed on probation within the Information Science and Technology department and will have one semester to increase it to the minimum or they will be dismissed from the major.
