Rutherford and Lodi, NJ—Dr. Gerard O’Sullivan, Felician College Dean of Arts and Sciences, recently announced the approval of two new undergraduate Computer Information Systems (CIS) degree programs: A baccalaureate program in Business with a Minor in Computer Information Systems, and a baccalaureate program in Computer Information Systems with a Concentration in Information Assurance and Security.
The BA in Computer Information Systems with a Concentration in Information Assurance and Security prepares students for careers in a field that has exploded in the last couple of years due to issues dealing with national security and the rampant threat of computer viruses and worms, identity theft, credit card fraud, and a host of other criminal activities. “There is an increased priority for Information Assurance Security (IAS) at all levels of society which are being brought about by technological advances and the increased risks of cyber-security attacks on computers in organizations and homes,” Dr. Alberto LaCava, professor and chair of Felician’s Department of Computer Information Systems. “Cyber systems support the nation’s critical infrastructures, and the need for educated professionals who can protect those systems has risen dramatically. Felician’s CIS bachelor of arts program with a minor in IAS prepares students for that important task,” he says.
The Business Major
with CIS Minor is structured for students who want to follow a business
management career path in Computer Information Systems. “The technical
component of the program gives students the skills and knowledge they need
