Students will learn important concepts about operating systems while applying skills and knowledge to support computers in a business environment or in an IT position. The CIS degree concentrates on computer applications and networking rather than business office practices. Firewalls and VPNs will also be addressed through National Institiute Standards and Technology guidelines that are used by businesses and information technology professionals. MOS certifications can be obtained with this degree.

For students who wish to transfer to SIU, this degree will capstone to the Information Systems Technologies and Healthcare Managment degree.
