A unique master's degree merging
technology and business

The Information Systems & Operations Management department from the Cameron School of Business and the Computer Science department from the College of Arts and Sciences began the Master of Science in Computer Science and Information Systems in Fall 2005. 

The MSCSIS is an intensive graduate program aimed at preparing the student to take on leadership roles in the development and implementation of computer and information systems.  The curriculum requires 36 semester hours.  There are six required core courses providing a mix of theoretical underpinning, technical skills and information technology perspectives.  Students can choose elective courses to provide opportunity for additional study in a variety of areas.  The program culminates with a capstone experience that can be an integrative project or a thesis.

Experienced professionals and undergraduates from both disciplines will enable significant classroom sharing of real world and theoretical knowledge.

Professional Science Masters
The MSCSIS degree is part of the Professional Science Master's (PSM) Program, new graduate degrees designed to allow students to pursue advanced training in science or mathematics, while simultaneously developing workplace skills highly valued by employers.
