Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Information Systems Technology
On-Campus Degree Overview
The disciplines of information systems and information technology are essential parts of business, non-profits, higher education and government organizations. Information systems are complex systems requiring both technical and organizational expertise for design, development and management. Simply stated, the information systems (IS) discipline allows organizations, through the deployment of technology and the management of information, to achieve the organization's stated mission, values and goals. Meanwhile, the study of information technology (IT) focuses on the technology itself.
