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.
