BS in Computer Information Systems

About the Program

This degree program is designed to prepare the graduate for professional careers in the cross-disciplines of computer science with business, forensics, or media.

What do students enrolled in the Computer Information Systems program do?

As an Computer Information Systems major, you will engage in several projects given throughout the program, allowing you to work with outside companies to gain real-world experience. These projects are not only in Computer Science but are also in either the fields of business or forensics.

Is this major right for you?

You might consider a Computer Information Systems major if you would like to work in information technology, manage computer scientists (web designers, programmers, etc.), or you are interested in computer forensics.

In our Computer Information Systems program, students have many opportunities. Several upper level classes require the student to work with a local company in creating a project. This allows the student to get real-world experience while still in college. Additionally, grant opportunities are possible where the student can go and present his research.

Your Future

"The computer science program at Southern Wesleyan University prepared me in many ways. Through strong relationships that were built with my professors I was about to get interviews. The content that I learned also prepared me for my masters in computer information systems at Boston University."

Lance Ingle, Class of 2009
"I felt well-prepared when I graduated. That confidence has helped me through interviews, proposing new projects/solutions at work and has even helped me push through to meet deadlines. The experience I gained at SWU is invaluable."
