This concentration of the Computer Science and Information Systems program can be completed entirely on-line. Students will be limited to a maximum of 9 credit hours each semester.
Information Systems: The goal of the Information Systems concentration is to provide students with a blend of computer science theory and business theory and applications. Some courses in this concentration are taken through the School of Management, which offers courses completely on-campus or in a “mixed-mode” format, which are on-line courses with on-campus residencies at UM-Flint on a Friday and Saturday every 6 weeks throughout the semester. Additionally, distance learners have the option to take the minimum required 6 credit hours of Information Systems courses through another university and transfer those credits into the program with departmental approval to facilitate fully on-line learning. Students will be limited to a maximum of 9 credit hours each semester among all of these course designations.
