Computer Information Systems

The Friends University bachelor of science in computer information systems (CIS) program is designed to prepare you for Microsoft certifications in Windows Server and Management and Analytics. You will be prepared across a cross-disciplinary sequence of courses in computer programming, web and server administration, data systems integration, and information systems architecture with a solid understanding of information security.

Computer Information Systems degree classes are taught by professionals who work in the fields they teach with degrees in CIS, MMIS, Cyber Security and with SAP, CISCO and Microsoft certifications. Their expertise, combined with the active collaboration of our students, creates an intensive and challenging program of study with enterprise specific functions, processes and applications. CIS graduates will find themselves well-suited to a variety of jobs as information technology professionals.

You will work through the CIS program with other adults in a supportive learning environment where you will receive individualized attention and support throughout your academic career and you will connect regularly with faculty, professional experts and classmates. Plus, the demand for computer and information systems managers is expected to grow at a rate of approximately 15% or more through 2024 (Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor).

Adult undergraduate bachelor’s degrees are offered on our Wichita campus and online. Not all courses and programs are available in both online and on-campus formats. Please contact an Admissions Counselor at 316-295-5300 or learn@friends.edu for more details.
