If you’re looking for a major that will put you in a hot job market after graduation, then Computer Information Systems (CIS) is for you. Recent studies have shown that in the next six years, many jobs in computer information systems fields will grow by nearly 50%. CNN Money ranks six BCIS-related jobs in the top 12 of hottest jobs for college graduates from 2006-2014.

What Our Graduates Are Saying
A number of our graduates have already found rewarding work putting their degrees to use:

“I created a portfolio with projects I had done in my CIS classes and took it to local businesses. I got an internship, which led to my full-time job. I started as a database support specialist and in six months, I was promoted.”
Adam Faulkner '06, Web Development, Teamwork Solutions

“I spent 16 years in banking and never had a job in the IT department. But everything you do relies on computers. Looking back, I wouldn’t change my major at all—I moved up the ladder quickly because I understood how to use computers efficiently. Having the IT knowledge has been very helpful to me.”
Sonja Haynes '88, Executive Director, Foundation for SCC
