Computer Information Systems
It's time the system was built for you
The mission of the Computer Information Systems Department at Aquinas College is to prepare students for careers in information technology as well as leaders in the industry.
Aquinas offers both Computer Information Systems (CIS) and Management Information Systems (MIS) majors. Each major includes a strong technical base, including programming, operating system, database, and networking foundational knowledge.
The CIS major strengthens each of these skill sets with advanced courses, while the MIS degree combines business skills such as accounting and marketing with the technical skills needed for business application of information systems and technology.

Career Preparation based on leadership
IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES
Students earning a CIS or MIS degree at Aquinas encounter abundant internship and full-time job opportunities. Even in an economic climate where many entry-level graduates find it difficult to job search, our graduates are finding many opportunities and are often hired before graduation. Area job fairs, online postings, personal networks, and, of course, Aquinas' excellent Career Services referrals are all good methods of job and internship hunting. Other options for graduates are to continue on to pursue a Master's of Science in an IT-related field.
