Area of Concentration

Option 1: CIS Degree without an Area of Concentration (9 credits)

This option does not require students to declare an area of concentration and thus allows them maximum flexibility in choosing their two upper-division CIS Electives and their CIS Capstone Group course.

  • Computer Information Systems Capstone Group (any 4000-level CIS course excluding CIS 4050) (3 credits)
  • Upper-division CIS Electives (6 credits)

Option 2: CIS Degree with an Area of Concentration (9 credits)

This option requires students to declare one, and only one, area of concentration. The area of concentration chosen dictates the CIS electives the students take. In addition, students complete the same set of core CIS courses as in Option 1.
