A Minor in Computer Information Systems (CIS) can be a valuable addition to any major since nearly all fields of study and organizations today employ computer technology in some way.

The CIS Minor consists of 15 hours of CIS courses - 6 or more of which must be advanced (3000-4999) course work. There is much flexibility to select from the CIS courses to meet your specific areas of interests in programming, computer networking, emerging technology and cybersecurity.
