You are the one your friends and family call when their computer breaks down. You would rather figure things out on your own than consult the manual. You are as curious about new software as you are about new gadgets - and you would like to turn your passion into a career. Then consider the A.A.S. degree in Computer Information Systems.

What You Will Learn:

You will learn the current concepts of information processing, including the latest applications software, data communications, distributed processing, user interface, management of intranets and Web publishing in a diverse hardware environment. You will also learn how to apply your skills to a specialization such as networking, information technology support, web technology, or programming.

What It Is Like:

You will have the ability to work both independently and in small groups. You will have the support of dedicated faculty and since class sizes are small, you will receive the individual attention you need, when you need it. Additionally, there will be plenty of opportunities for hands-on experience using the latest hardware and software.
