The Computer Information Systems program is designed to prepare students for a career in computer technology or to transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a baccalaureate degree. The program provides the knowledge and skills needed to pursue a successful career in those areas of business, education, government and other fields in which computers are routinely used for information processing. In particular, the Computer Information Systems program offers instruction for students interested in microcomputer-based computer careers. The courses teach students how software and hardware interrelate to build a cohesive approach to solving problems.
By using the ARTSYS website, available in the Advising and Transfer Center in A102, students can plan a course of study that will transfer to computer-related programs at four-year institutions. This sequence is specifically designed to enable transfer to the University of Baltimore’s Applied Information System program and may be useful as a guide for transfer to other programs or institutions; it is not designed for students interested in either computer science or computer engineering. Students interested in immediate careers in computer technology will be able to tailor the program’s eight elective credits to meet their career objectives.
