Our graduates understand the technologies and techniques that organizations use to meet their information and business needs. In support of this mission, the School of Information Systems and Technology offers master's and doctoral degrees, as well as certificate programs, in information systems and technology. Further, we maintain a strong research agenda and community outreach activities.
44 units of course work.
* 2 Competency Courses
- Organization as Information Processing Systems
- Information Technology (Programming)
* 4 Core Courses
- Data Base Concepts
- Information Analysis and Design
- Communications and Networking
- Management of IT
* 4 Concentration Courses
The concentration will include a set of 4 courses that for a total of 16 units, with at least one course from each of two broad areas: Technology/Tools and Management/Strategy. The concentrations generally fall within the field strengths of the core faculty. In addition, a student will be able to customize his or her own concentration. The customized concentration would allow students to select a set of courses that would meet their needs, but keeping the principle that at least one course must come from each of the two areas, and no more than 8 units could be taken outside the IS discipline but must be taken within CGU.
In all cases, independent study classes can be used for concentration credits. Courses will apply to more than one concentration area (e.g., Internet Technology would apply to both the electronic commerce and telecom concentrations). Additional courses offered by other Schools at CGU, courses transferred into the degree, or independent study courses could be used to earn concentration units.
