Information and Computer Science, B.S.


The Information and Computer Science (ICS) curriculum prepares students for a broad range of computer opportunities in industry as well as in graduate studies. ICS students choose one or more specialty areas from among these options: (1) Computer Science , (2) Cybersecurity   , (3) Data Management ,  (4) Information Technology , (5) Network and Security , and (6) Software Development . As part of their curriculum, Networking and Security students take Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) courses that prepare them for the CCNA certification exam. Courses offered in the Cybersecurity specialty area prepare students for cybersecurity certification exams. Depending on their chosen specialty area, ICS graduates are well prepared for these industry positions: applications programmer, systems analyst, information technology specialist, database analyst, network analyst, web programmer, software engineer, and cybersecurity specialist.        

The CSIS Department works with Park’s Career Development Center in helping to place students in computer internship positions. The CSIS Department actively encourages students to work in such internship positions and considers internships to be an integral part of the ICS curriculum.
