A computer information systems major prepares you to advance as a business technology professional in a growing career field. It sharpens your ability to exercise logical thinking and find new ways to apply the use of technology in organizational contexts. It equips you with the skills necessary to excel as an innovative problem solver. And it trains you to integrate faith and work as a Christ-centered business leader.
At Cornerstone, we do not require you to have prior knowledge of computer programming before declaring a major in computer information systems. Expert faculty will give you theoretical and practical experience you need to know for topics such as web development, network configuration and database creation. This positions you to graduate as a well-rounded technical professional.
