Information Systems

Coursework

At the core of IS studies are the programming, business modeling and computer sciences courses that form the heart of this major. The 13 courses required of Stevens’ IS major makes it one of the most rigorous programs of its kind in the nation, allowing students to develop a superior technical background, a better understanding of state-of-the art technologies and tools, and an end-to-end view of information systems. Programming courses use Python, an industry standard, letting students specialize in a popular development tool and providing depth that isn’t available in programs where basic training on many languages is offered.
