Master of Science in Information Systems

Monmouth’s MS in Information Systems (MSIS) program is a unique, innovative program that melds management, computer science, and software engineering to prepare you for a leadership role in the IT sector. Unlike other programs with similar names, our program truly integrates both the business and software development disciplines.

Our 30-43.5 credit program (depending on prior academic preparation) provides flexible scheduling, allowing you to take face-to-face classes as well as hybrid classes ― classroom meetings alternating with online instruction.

Monmouth’s proximity to one of the country’s richest concentrations of high-tech companies enriches your experience through mentoring programs, internships, practicums, and employment opportunities. Plus, you have the opportunity to focus on the technology or management side of information systems by choosing one of two distinct tracks.
