Business Computer Information Systems

Dr. Pat Jaska, Chairperson

The objective of the Department of Business Computer Information Systems in the College of Business is to motivate students to develop their potential for excellence in Business Computer Information Systems fields. This is accomplished through concerned faculty and a curriculum that gives the student a broad education in the fundamental principles and applied techniques of the discipline. The ultimate goal of the department is to prepare information technology and systems professionals in business, industry, and government.

Three separate major fields are offered in this department: BBA in Computer Information Systems, BA/BS Multimedia & Information Technology, and BA/BS Computer Studies. Minors in Multimedia & Information Technology, Computer Studies, and Web Design are also available.

To graduate with the BBA in BCIS, the student must be accepted into the College of Business with a minimum 2.5 Grade Point Average (G.P.A.) in the Business Foundation courses.

To graduate with a B.A. or a B.S. degree offered by the BCIS Department, the student must have obtained a Grade Point Average (G.P.A.) in major field courses of at least 2.50 and an overall G.P.A. of at least 2.25.

To certify to teach Computer Studies, the student must have obtained a G.P.A. of at least 2.75 in the major or minor in Computer Studies and an overall G.P.A. of at least 2.4.

No grade lower than “C” will count toward fulfillment of major field requirements.
