Management Information Systems

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Computer and Mathematical Sciences

The Computer and Mathematical Sciences Department offers a minor in Management Information Systems.  By completing this minor, students will be introduced to computer programming and the software development process.  Additionally, students have the flexibility to select several elective courses that best match their interests in either the use of information systems in business or in any other area of business. 


A minor is defined as a course of study of at least 18 semester hours outside the student’s major. Academic minors may be earned in disciplines as specified by the department faculty. Requirements are a grade point average of 2.0 or higher for 18 or more semester hours.

Courses for the minor may also meet general education or major requirements, and at least 9 of the required hours must be earned in Columbia College coursework. (Transfer courses equivalent to courses designated are accepted toward the minor.)

Majors and minors may not be added to an already earned degree.

In some curricular areas, the College offers courses totaling fewer than 18 semester hours. In these areas, students may earn additional semester hours through transfer credit so the total semester hours earned meets the required number of hours (see Evaluation of Credit and Testing ). Main Campus Day students can participate in cooperative cross-enrollment with the University of Missouri - Columbia and/or Stephens College (see Advising and Registration ).

Elective Courses (9 sem. hrs)

Elective hours must be at the 200-level or above and chosen from the following business field codes: ACCT, CISS, ECON, FINC, MGMT, MKTG.

Total Semester Hours: 18
