Computer Information Systems (CIS)

The Computer Information Systems program offers curricula leading to the the Bachelor of Science degree in CIS.  The program provides both theoretical and practical "hands-on" classes in Database, Networking, Programming and Systems Analysis & Design.

The CIS area changes frequently and, with that in mind, NSU's CIS curriculum has changed to "keep up with the times".  Refer to the curriculum layouts provided below for more details.
