Master of Science in Information Systems
Monmouth’s M.S. in Information Systems (MSIS) 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. Our high-tech computer labs provide access to the latest software, servers, and applications.
Monmouth’s proximity to one of the country’s richest concentrations of high-tech companies enriches your experience through mentoring programs, internships, practicums, and career opportunities. Plus, you have the opportunity to focus on the technology or management side of information systems by choosing one of two distinct tracks.
Application deadlines for this program are May 1 for Summer, July 15 for Fall, and December 1 for Spring. View Program Application Requirements.
