The Integrated BS and MS in any computer field allows students to combine any Bachelor's degree at the university with any of the Master's degrees offered by the Computer and Information Systems Department. A student can earn both a bachelor's degree and a master's degree upon completion of the integrated program. For most students, the program requires 150 credits.
Interested students may apply as current RMU undergraduates, incoming freshmen or incoming transfer students. After being accepted into the integrated phase of the program, the undergraduate and graduate course work are combined to streamline completion of the program. The undergraduate portion of the integrated program may be in almost any bachelor's degree program offered by the University; however, students will be required to complete the graduate program prerequisites as part of their undergraduate coursework. Ideally, all prerequisites should be met prior to completing 87 undergraduate credits.
The student can pursue one of six master's degrees in the graduate portion of the integrated program: the Master of Science in Communications and Information Systems (MS-COIS), the Master of Science in Competitive Intelligence Systems (MS-CIS), the Master of Science in Information Security and Assurance (MS-ISA), the Master of Science in Information Systems Management (MS-ISM), the Master of Science in Information Technology Project Management (MS-ITPM) or the Master of Science in Internet Information Systems (MS-IIS).
