The IS concentration supplements the CSCI core curriculum with courses in e-Business, Enterprise Resource Planning, and Enterprise System implementation and programming. Students select an emphasis in accounting or management and explore the application of information systems in business process definition and execution. This concentration is designed for students who wish to apply their knowledge in e-Business development, Enterprise Resource Planning, Enterprise System implementation, or within their emphasis area, and for those who plan graduate work in information science or business administration.
Grade Requirement Policy
For satisfactory progression in the major or minor, the student must attain:
- An overall GPA of 2.5 or better; and
- A GPA of 2.5 or better in all computing courses; and
- A grade of B- or better in CSCI 1250 and CSCI 1260 .
- A grade of “C-” or better in all other major requirements. This includes both common core and concentration-specific courses and all courses from other departments that satisfy major requirements.
- A minimum grade of “C” in ENGL 1010 and ENGL 1020 .
All computing majors or minors may attempt CSCI courses a maximum of three times. An attempt is defined as registering for and remaining enrolled in a course after the third week of the semester. (Withdrawing from a course after the third week of the semester is considered an attempt.)
Computing majors and minors will be required to change their program of study if these requirements cannot be met.
All concentrations must complete 124 credits, including the ETSU General Education Requirements, the common computing core, and the concentration-specific courses.
CISC majors must pass the proficiency exam or complete CSCI 1100 - Using Information Technology prior to accumulating 30 credits.
