The Information Systems (IS) program is designed to prepare the student for careers in the information processing and technology industries. Students develop skills in the design, modeling, and development of computer-based information systems. These include two primary areas of study: computing and business. To support the development of computing skills, the students learn to utilize and to critique technology associated with the systems, and apply them to business. To support the development of business skills, a portion of the curriculum emphasizes the role and concepts of the different functional areas of business. In addition, students develop communication and interpersonal skills in order to interact positively with their organizations. Students incorporate the facets of their professional education with the facets of the societal awareness and make ethical - professional and personal - decisions. Ultimately, the students leave with the foundations to define a high quality of life for themselves by integrating their professions with life-style decisions.
The Liberal Studies Core Curriculum is one reflection of Gannon University's commitment to
its Catholic identity. The Core's design offers students a defined, integrated, shared
experience as the foundation for their undergraduate program.
