Carroll College now has a new major in Computer Information Systems
(CIS). This degree is recommended for students who are interested primarily in a career in the application of technology in the business environment. It combines current Carroll business classes with applied Computer Science
classes to develop skills that are immediately applicable to the job world.
With the the CIS degree, the math and theory are replaced with business classes selected to develop the student's ability to manage successful implementations and understand and design accountability into the technology processes. This program combines Carroll's strong applied CS classes (networks, database, security and software and web development) with management, project management and other business classes.
