COMPUTER SCIENCE

The Program offers Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in Management Information Systems (MIS) and Web Development. More than ever before, businesses and other organizations depend on the effective management and maintenance of information. A fundamental goal of both MIS and Web Development is to integrate the use of computers and information with the aims of a particular organization or business.

  • A professional in MIS must have a good working knowledge of computers and several computer languages, knowledge of business, statistics and accounting practices, and the personal skills to work effectively with others.
  • A professional in Web Development also must have a working knowledge of computers and several computer languages as well as a good working knowledge of graphic design to create visually compelling web applications.
