Management of Information Systems

The Associate in Science transfer program is designed to provide the first two years of a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Systems. This forward-thinking program offers a solid background in liberal arts and sciences as well as the skills and knowledge needed to design, create, manage, and effectively use modern information systems. The information systems curriculum has no single application focus. It is directed to the art and science of managing information in all application environments. Students learn how to determine information needs, design appropriate information systems, manage those systems, and measure the systems’ performance. The emphasis is on the users of computers, and on building professional-level information systems skills.   Apply & Register Program Details
