Computer Science (Information Systems)

Curriculum CIS.CSI.AS (U230A11)

Students intending to major in Computer Science with a business emphasis in Information Systems will need a background in Mathematics and information systems. Baccalaureates in Information Systems generally find employment as programmers, systems analysts, operations research, database management or system administrators.

Students should note that four-year colleges and universities vary in specific course and transfer requirements. Therefore, it is important that in selecting Triton courses, students should consult a Triton counselor, as well as the catalog and/or admissions advisor at the senior institution to which transfer is intended.

1General education/Social and Behavioral Science courses need to be chosen from two different disciplines. One course from Social/Behavioral Science, Humanities or Fine Arts needs to meet the human diversity requirement. The courses meeting this requirement have an (*) in the general education lists.

This is a generic outline of courses for this program of study. Requirements may vary based on undergraduate major and/or chosen transfer school. Meet with the curriculum counselor for specific transfer school recommendations.
