Degree Programs

At the Center for Information Systems and Technology, we conduct practical research and analyze theoretical use of information technology to solve trans-disciplinary problems. Technologically adept, but not strictly a "tech" school, CISAT offers faculty-sponsored laboratories and curricula which integrate computing, management, new media, and other disciplines. Some of our students aspire to be IT leaders in practice (i.e., IT and non-IT businesses, government, education, and elsewhere), while others aim to hold research and teaching positions in academia. All are here to master the established body of knowledge in IS&T, as well as to be exposed to the latest research findings from our faculty members and their colleagues around the world.

CISAT offers two degree programs:

Master of Science in Information Systems and Technology

  • Prepares students for IS&T leadership roles in business, government, education, and other areas
  • Provides balance between technology and management content
  • Available with a concentration in GIS Solution Development, Health Informatics, or Cyber Security
  • Can be earned as dual degree (with MBA or Public Health)

Ph.D. in Information Systems and Technology

  • Prepares students to be IS&T scholars and academic leaders
  • Research education from distinguished research faculty
  • A Master's degree in IS&T (or closely-related field) is required
