College of Letters and Science Computer Information Systems Minor


The Computer Information Systems minor provides students with a foundation in computing through coursework in programming, database design and development, web design and development, and networking. This minor pairs well with disciplines that benefit from computational skills, and it is recommended for students majoring in Web Development who wish to specialize in software development.

The CIS minor consists of at least 31 credits:

Requirements: CIS 120, CIS 225 or CNMT 210, CIS 210 and 220, CNMT 101, 110, and 310, and MATH 209.

  1. You should declare your intention to minor in CIS no later than the first semester of your sophomore year.
  2. You must have no more than one grade below C- in all CIS courses. If a course is repeated, only the most recent grade counts. CIS courses taken pass/fail do not count for the CIS minor.
  3. You must have a GPA in all CIS courses of at least 2.25.
  4. You may petition the department for exceptions.
