Bachelor of Science in Information Systems Saint Michael's College

USA

Course info

Summary

As an Information Systems major at Saint Michael's, you'll study how organizations use technology resources and services. With its liberal arts emphasis, Information Systems is for students interested in the broader aspects of computing for efficiently operating and promoting an organization.

If you want to be a computing generalist, study Computer Science. But if you are interested in the use of computer-based information systems within business, then study information systems. As a rule, computer science requires more mathematics and analytical skill than does Information Systems. After graduation, Information Systems majors might: design and maintain computer networks and database systems; create Web sites; handle system administration; or manage other professionals for the strategic and technological advantage of an organization.

Information Systems is a distinct approach to the study of computing because its context is an organization, and that organization’s information systems. Information Systems contains a significant knowledge base derived from computer science but also from the field of business management. As an academic field, Information Systems encompasses two broad areas:

  • Acquisition, deployment, and management of information technology resources and services (the information systems function)
  • Development and evolution of infrastructure and systems for use in organization processes (system development)

Each semester you’ll take business and computer science courses, mixed throughout your four years along with accounting, economics, statistics and liberal studies requirements.

Special Opportunities

As a St. Mike's student majoring in Information Systems, you'll get a chance to try the skills you've just learned in real-world settings through internships, just as our computer science or business majors do. Of further special interest to you might be competitions and guest lecturers from both the Computer Science and Business departments.

Careers

As an Information Systems expert for a business, or perhaps for a government agency or nonprofit, you will share broad responsibility to: develop, implement, and manage an infrastructure of information technology (computers and communications), data (both internal and external), and organization-wide systems; to: track new information technology and assist in incorporating it into the organization's strategy, planning, and practices; and to support departmental and individual information technology systems. The mix of business, computer science and liberal arts courses that you'll take as a St. Mike's Information Systems major will help you acquire the right tools.
