Why study B.S. in Computer Information Systems: Systems Development Concentration at APSU?

The APSU Computer Science and Information Technology Department has dedicated full-time faculty members and features small class sizes. All classes are taught by professors and not graduate students. Many classes are conducted in modern computer labs, and all classrooms are “smart” classrooms, allowing computer-based demonstrations and lectures.


What Will I Learn?

This program is for those who plan to work in some areas of computer applications in the business field. Areas of study include data communications, database management, and systems analysis and design, with an emphasis on programming in several languages that are useful for business applications.

 The Freshmen Seminar degree requirement completed by most students is APSU 1000. The course is delivered in a small-class setting with like-minded students led by a faculty member and a peer leader. The interdisciplinary course is intended to support first-semester students and provide them with a foundation for university success. Emphasis is placed on student engagement, university learning success strategies, support services, library literacy, financial literacy, and academic and career planning. The first class meeting of APSU 1000 during fall semesters is on Freshmen Convocation Day.

The general education core is designed to develop critical competencies in written communication, oral communication, mathematical analysis, and critical thinking skills. Students at APSU select coursework in the general education core in the areas of Communication, Humanities and Fine Arts, Social and Behavioral Sciences, History, Natural Sciences, and Mathematics. While the general education core requirements for graduation can be met by choosing courses from each of these areas, some programs of study require lower division courses that serve as prerequisites for upper division courses. Students should consult the sample 4-year plans and confer with their academic advisors as they choose their general education core courses.
