Computer Studies

The Associate in Science Degree in Management Information Systems is designed for students pursuing degrees in Business Administration, Computer Information Systems, or Management Information Systems. Students should determine what other lower division requirements are required by the institution to which they intend to transfer.

Career Opportunities:

Over the past two decades, there has been a sharp rise in the use of computers and information technology in every sector of our economy. The overall demand for computer professionals (systems analysts, programmers, and computer networking technicians) continues to expand, increasing every year with the future seemingly limitless. Many professions demand an understanding of information technology beyond computer literacy. This anticipated growth, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, surpasses all other occupations.
