5-Year Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and Master's Degree in Information Systems

DeSales University Computer Science majors can earn both a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and a Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) in five years. 

The combination of a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and a master’s degree in Information Systems is considered one of the best ­­­­­­­­combination of degrees for current jobs, salary, and predicted job growth (Forbes, 2016).

The concentrations offered in the MSIS program (Cyber Security, Digital Forensics, Health Care Information Management, and Project Management) further enhance the student’s skills and marketability (Forbes, 2016).

Who may apply to the program?

DeSales Computer Science majors in their junior year  with a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 or higher in the major, a 3.0 overall, and internship or work experience.
