Master of Science in Information Systems
Our Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) program prepares graduates for successful information technology careers. If you have an undergraduate degree with a computer science or information systems major or have equivalent industry experience, this degree is for you! If you are ready for a successful career in database administration, network administration or systems administration, or want the skills to perhaps become a future CIO, enroll in the Graduate School of Technology's MSIS program.
Our Master of Science in Information Systems is a natural fit if you are ready for an advanced degree in computer science that is in tune with your information technology career needs. You will acquire the tools to upgrade and fine-tune your technology skills. You will also develop the managerial skills and technical expertise to transition into information systems management positions. We believe our concentrations in database systems, data communications, and technology leadership, as well as core courses in technical management, will give you an edge over job-seekers who have only undergraduate-level training in computer science.
- 4 Core Management Courses 12 credits
- 4 Required Courses in Concentration 12 credits
- 3 Elective Courses in Concentration 9 credits
11 Courses in Program - Total 33 credits
- Completion of a baccalaureate degree or its equivalent from an accredited academic institution; a major in Computer Science or Information Systems is recommended, but not required.
- A minimum of 9 semester hours of computer science courses, including the prerequisites for the desired concentration or their equivalents, are required; alternatively, we will require bridge courses to be completed (see desired concentration for details).
- A minimum undergraduate and/or graduate grade point average of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale).
- Fulfillment of the English Language Proficiency requirement, if applicable.
Graduate School of Technology students receive financial grants. Scholarships range from $200 per course. Scholarships are entirely merit-based, so a 3.0 undergraduate GPA is required to apply. If you are not awarded a scholarship upon your initial enrollment in the program, you may apply for the Fall semester of the following academic year, if your GPA in the first year of our program is at least 3.0.
Scholarships must be renewed annually, each Fall. You must submit a new scholarship application to apply for scholarship renewal each year. If your cumulative GPA in the program falls below 3.0, you will not be eligible for scholarship renewal. However, if your GPA improves, you may apply for a new scholarship in the Fall of the following academic year. Please note: Even for students who maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA, scholarship renewal is not guaranteed.
