Information Systems - Minor

The Information Systems Minor is intended for students in the math and science majors to help them gain experience with computer and information technology applications and be able to serve as a liaison between technologists and users/clients in information systems. It is designed to provide practical, hands-on skills with information technologies in order to complement many majors of theoretical focus in their studies. Students in this minor will have increased employability for a wider variety of careers in the technology related field.

The Information Management / Library and Information Science Department offers the Master of Library and Information Science graduate degree as well as the Information Systems minor and the Digital Humanities minor at the baccalaureate level.

Students minoring in Information Systems cannot concurrently earn a Digital Humanities Minor.

This minor is offered in the College for Women only.
