Graduate Programs

Master of Science

The IS Department offers two campus-based MS degrees and one completely online MS degree. All programs are designed for computer and information systems professionals who wish to further their knowledge and experience in the area of information systems or Human-Centered Computing (HCC). These programs may also be of interest to individuals whose undergraduate academic backgrounds are not in a computer or information systems discipline but who meet the department’s admission requirements.

Master of Science Certificates

Do you want to learn a specific skill set and not commit to a full masters? Do you want to advance your career in less time and focus on a single area? Are you on a budget but would still like to gain a critical understanding og AI, Cybersecurity, Data Science and UX? Then our 100% online certificate program is perfect for you.

Doctor of Philosophy

The IS Department offers two PhD programs. The PhD programs are research oriented and are intended for graduate students who desire to make research contributions to the field of Information Systems or Human-Centered Computing (HCC).

Non-Majors interested IS or HCC Graduate Courses

Please complete this form if you are a graduate student who wants to enroll in IS or HCC courses. Requests will be reviewed 2 weeks prior to the start of the semester. Remaining seats will be offered in the order in which requests were received.

Assistantship and Research Opportunities

There are three main forms of assistantships which serve as a source of funding and employment for students in the Information Systems Department: research assistantships, teaching assistantships, and graders. Visit the assistantship webpage for more information and to apply.

The department now uses a central form to collect research interests from our undergraduate and graduate students to help match students with projects (or opportunities) supervised by IS faculty. Please use the form, instead of direct email to individual faculty, to express your interest in conducting research with IS faculty. If a faculty member is interested in working with you, they will contact you directly.
