The Master of Science in Information Systems is designed to help students navigate the ever-transforming digital world. Through hands-on skills learned in their coursework, graduates of the program will be prepared to make an impact on any industry. Some of the skills learned in the program include digital solutions design, management strategy, working with big data, and analyzing how policy impacts information. Students graduate prepared to enter a range of fields, including consulting, IT services and management, and more.
The degree program requires 42 credit hours and students take a combination of core courses and electives to complete the degree.
