B.S. in Computer Science/M.S. in Management Information Systems
The University offers a five-year program that allows qualified students to attain a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science and a Master of Science degree in management information systems (MIS) with a combined course load of 141 credits.
Students are eligible to apply for the combined program after completing 60 undergraduate credits and obtaining a grade point ratio of 3.00 or better in the first 15 credits of computer science courses.
Applications should be submitted before the student has completed 27 credits of computer science courses. Upon completion of their undergraduate degree, students who have maintained a 3.00 GPR in their computer science courses will be admitted to the graduate MIS program.

1SCIENCE REQUIREMENTS: The student may choose any two of the following full-year laboratory science sequences: BIOL1251/BIOL1252, CHEM1201/CHEM1202, or PHYS2201/2202. The accompanying laboratory is required.
2CONCENTRATION REQUIREMENTS: Students must complete any two of four concentration areas: Cybersecurity and Information Assurance, Game and Mobile Application Development, Data Management, and Information Security Administration. Each concentration requires the successful completion of six courses (18 credits), of which three courses are already included in the B.S. Computer Science core requirements as indicated by * below.
3These courses can be applied to the M.S. degree provided that the student earns a grade of B or better.
4GRADUATE ELECTIVES: Students must select three courses from the list below. However, students have the option of registering for a 3-credit internship (which counts as one graduate elective course) after completing the B.S. degree and 18 graduate credits. At the discretion of the School and consistent with the program objectives, other information technology and business-oriented course may be added to this list.
CSCI 6733, CSCI 6734, CSCI 6735, CSCI 6751, CSCI 6810, CSCI 6844, CSCI 7728, CSCI 7781, CSCI 7785, CSCI 7795
Upon completion of the undergraduate degree, students who have maintained a 3.00 GPR in their computer science courses will be admitted to the graduate management information systems program. A minimum of 120 credits is required for the B.S. degree and a minimum of 141 credits is required for the combined B.S. in Computer Science/M.S. Management Information Systems degrees
