MSIS General Course of Study
In the MSIS program, you have the option to follow a general course of study. Many students like the flexibility encouraged by this general program of study – often, employers are looking for those with the broadest range of knowledge and experience. You can take a sampling of courses from each of the curricular areas: cognitive, foundations, and systems and technology.
In consultation with your academic advisor you will choose courses that meet the following minimum 36 credit requirement.
- Six credits of course work in the Formal or Applied Foundations area
- Eighteen credits of course work in the Systems and Technology areas (INFSCI 2500 required, unless equivalent has already been taken)
Six credits in the Cognitive Science or Cognitive Systems areas. INFSCI 2300 is recommended as the first course in this area. INFSCI 2130 may be used to meet this requirement with permission of the advisor.
- Six credits of electives. Students may pursue a thesis or a practicum as one of the elective options. Students should know that a thesis is not a requirement of the MSIS degree program.
