MS-MIS Courses

Students may earn the Master of Science in Management Information Systems (MS-MIS) degree by completing 36 credit hours plus four prerequisites. For the general Master of Science degree description and requirements at the university level, please see the online graduate catalog.

One credit hour represents approximately one hour of class time per week. Most courses you will take in the MS-MIS program are three credit hours each. Therefore, you would expect that a three-credit hour course would meet for about three hours of instruction each week during the semester.

The degree requires 12 information system and business related courses (36 credit hours). This coursework is divided into business core, MIS core, and elective courses.
