B.S. Computer Information Systems

The IDEAL Program offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Systems. In addition, Averett offers a minor in Computer Information Systems to complement any major.

The purposes of courses in this department are to train students in the techniques, theory, and applications of computer science and information systems as well as in specific programming languages and computer systems. The two majors give students sufficient training to pursue any of the following:

  1. A career in the public or private sector in a computer-related position.
  2. Additional education at the graduate level in the areas of computer science, business, management information systems, and  other quantitative fields.

The Computer Science Department believes the strengths of its programs are a direct result of its dedicated students, personal attention from a faculty that places emphasis on quality teaching, and a faculty that is interested in and constantly aware of individual progress.

Students must attain at least a 2.00 grade point average in the major in order to graduate.
