Computing and Information Systems courses are offered by the Department of Finance, Information Systems, and Management Science.
Over the past few decades, computerized information systems have helped transform the business and social landscape in North America and around the world. To be successful today, companies require individuals who possess in-depth understanding of the technologies and processes underlying the new environment, and, at the same time, understand the strategic information needs of businesses and consumers. The Bachelor of Commerce degree with a major in Computing and Information Systems is designed to prepare students to fill this important role in modern organizations.
The Bachelor of Commerce is a well-established, foundational degree and requires the requirements listed below alongside general graduation requirements.
A major in Computing and Information Systems may be completed within the Bachelor of Commerce program, either alone or as part of a dual major. In either case a major in Computing and Information Systems requires the completion of the core B. Comm. requirements plus a set of core CIS courses. Course requirements for a Computing and Information Systems major, beyond the B. Comm. Core, are described below.
Note: Students are advised that possession of the minimum qualifications does not guarantee admission to a particular academic program. Limits to the number of students who can be in a particular program at any one time exist and depend very much on the number of faculty members available in a particular academic unit.
Upon completion of 45 credit hours, Commerce students with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 may elect to declare a major in Computing and Information Systems. (In exceptional circumstances, students can also be admitted to the major by permission of the Chairperson.)
To assist students, the Year 3 and Year 4 course requirements for a Computing and Information Systems major and the core BComm degree program requirements are listed below. Course descriptions follow.
To complete a major in Computing and Information Systems, students must attain a minimum grade point average of 2.2 in Management Information Systems (ACCT 3323) and all Computing and Information Systems courses taken at the 2000 level and above.
