Information Systems Major
What is Information Systems?
The Information Systems (IS) major prepares students to create, deploy and manage information systems to integrate all aspects of a business. Coursework includes programming, systems analysis and design, database, networking, and electives such as mobile application development. Students can develop specialized skills based on their career interests by choosing among several emphases.
Information Systems at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh
One of the greatest strengths of the Information Systems program at UW-Oshkosh is the high degree of one-on-one engagement between students and faculty. The IS faculty is highly knowledgeable and focused on teaching skills that are relevant to practice. The department maintains a close connection with local and regional employers looking to hire Oshkosh graduates. This close connection with industry helps inform classroom instruction. The IS major is available to students fully admitted into the College of Business.
