Computer Information Systems (CIS) is where technology meets the real world. Today’s complex and inter-related global economies demand well-rounded professionals possessing, not only a strong technological tools set, but a diverse portfolio of skills that include a solid understanding of business/business processes, leadership and project management, and exceptional interpersonal and communication skills. CIS is one of the few, inter-disciplinary computing-related degrees today that adequately prepares students to meet these multi-faceted workforce demands.

The Computer Information Systems program offered at California University of Pennsylvania is designed for highly-motivated students who seek professional positions in the dynamic computing forum and who are willing to complete course work that is elevated above the average in order to meet current industry standards and/or to be fully-prepared for graduate studies.
