Additional Major Information

Some major courses are offered only once during an academic year. It is the student's responsibility to work with their Academic Advisor to develop a program of study that ensures courses are taken in the proper sequence and all prerequisites are satisfied. The IS major consists of four (4) required and three (3) elective courses. Six (6) of the seven (7) major courses must be ISOM department courses. Students may transfer a maximum of two (2) courses towards their IS major of which no more than one is a major required course. Prior approval is required for using a non-ISOM course as a major elective.

Information Systems/Big Data and Business Analytics Technology Practicum

Practical information systems and data analytics experience prepares students for real-world challenges in the workplace. All IS and BDBA majors must complete 150 hours of approved professional information systems or big data business analytics experience before graduation. The 150 hours of work experience may be obtained in one or more positions as an intern, part- or full-time employee or volunteer. Prior approval of your position by the IS Practical Experience Coordinator is required. This is accomplished by completing the IS Practicum Approval Form.

Most students satisfy this graduation requirement by completing ISOM-560: IS Practicum, a non-credit, tuition-free, pass/fail course. Students should enroll in ISOM-560 the semester when they expect to complete their 150 hours or the subsequent semester. Students may also satisfy this practicum requirement by enrolling in ISOM-520: IS Internship (1 to 3 credits based on the number of hours worked). ISOM-520 requires junior standing and is a graded course that can only be used as a free elective (cannot be used as a major elective).
