MIS Minor

A minor in MIS provides undergraduate students the ability to specify, select, use, and apply information technology (IT) to their major field of study. The minor provides the skills and terminology needed to become an expert user of IT in the business world.

Vaughn ParkerI choose the MIS minor because Accounting is becoming more integrated with information systems. We are in the “Age of Information” and it makes sense to have informatics under your belt. The best part of MIS is the bonding between professors and students.
