Study Synchronously Online or On Campus: It's Your Choice STEM-Certified Program

Become an innovator in information technology.

The Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) program is a natural fit for those who are ready for an advanced degree in computer science, acquiring the necessary tools to upgrade and fine-tune both one’s managerial and technological skills.

Our dynamic program is designed to shape the next generation of technology leaders, offering concentrations in Network Administration and Cybersecurity, Data Analytics and Database Systems, Technology Leadership/Project Management, and Web and Applicant Development, as well as core courses in technical management and cloud computing.

MODE OF DELIVERY FOR MSIS COURSES:

MSIN 609, MSIN 630, MSIN 675, and MSIN 695 courses will be delivered to students through asynchronous education, whereby the learning does not occur in the same place or at the same time. Instead, the lectures are accessed by students on demand and flexibly, so that they individually learn the material where they choose and when they choose. F1 international students must follow the guidance of the Department of Homeland Security regarding classroom presence and can contact us for more information.

For all the other courses:

Students may join any class session on campus or online. Professors and students are interacting in real time during the class session, with some students in the classroom and the rest joining online. All students can later re-watch the recording of any class session on their own time to reinforce that evening’s concepts. F1 international students must follow the guidance of the Department of Homeland Security regarding classroom presence and can contact us for more information.
