CIS Minor

The CIS minor is intended for students who are not Business majors or part of the online Business management program.

This minor is intended to accelerate your career by providing you with the technology skills that will better prepare you to do your job. In many cases, careers of all types will require a solid understanding of technology. These are the tools that you will use to do your job, so the better you understand them the better off you will be. A CIS minor will give you a competitive advantage in advancing your career. 

The CIS minor is targeted toward students outside of the business division as well as students majoring in other business division areas such as Management and Marketing. The CIS majors will take these same courses which are considered part of the CIS major.
