The Information Systems major was developed to produce graduates
with the processing, usage, and managing skills required by business,
education and government. This major may be done as a double major
since it is anticipated that many students may wish to combine the
Information Systems major with some other major offered in the Bachelor
of Arts degree. Those wishing to specialize exclusively in Information
Systems should consider enrolling in the Bachelor of Science in
Computing and Information Systems offered by the
School of Computing Information Systems.
Courses in the Information Systems major deal with both computer
science and business applications. Information Systems courses may
not transfer to computer science programs at other institutions.
Students are therefore cautioned to consult with other institutions
on a course-by-course basis if they are considering transferring
Athabasca University's Information Systems courses to another
program of study.
Requirements within the 120 credits required for the BA.
