Computer Information Systems (CIS)

Computer Information Systems is a study of the concepts, principles, and  processes for two broad areas of activity within an organization: (1)  acquisition, deployment, and management of information technology  resources and services (the information systems function) and (2)  development, operation, and evolution of infrastructure and systems for  use in an organization.

Information Systems professionals must have sound technical knowledge  of computers, communications and software, but they must also  understand organizations and how they function. Thus, the Computer  Information Systems major provides a combination of technical computer  science coursework as well as several business courses. Such coursework  emphasizes information technology and implementation, organization  functions, and concepts and processes of organizational management.
