Master of Science in Information Systems: Software Engineering Management Concentration
The Master of Science in Information Systems (MSIS) is a professional degree program that stresses the technical, managerial, and policy issues associated with building computer based systems that support modern organizations. The program addresses the theoretical and practical aspects of specifying, designing, implementing, and managing systems that possess qualities such as portability, scalability, and interoperability (open systems).
The Master of Science in Information Systems program treats information as an organizational resource that is subject to managerial planning and control. It focuses on integration of data and distribution of information in helping organizations to be more competitive. In addition, the program offers graduates most of the academic background necessary to pursue certification as a Certified Computer Professional (CCP).
Students who have not earned degrees from appropriate fields of study may be required to take additional coursework as a prerequisite for completing the program.
||Software Engineering Management
||A 2.75 undergraduate grade point average on a 4.0 scale during the junior and senior years of the Baccalaureate degree (i.e. the second half of the credits required for the degree, normally the last 60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours).
||Baccalaureate degree (preferably in the same field of study, but others will be considered)
|Credit Transfer Restrictions
||Strayer University will accept transfer credit from institutions that are accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. This may include two and four year colleges and universities, business colleges, trade schools, and international universities. Credits from international institutions will be accepted if the institution is recognized as the equivalent to an accredited institution in the United States.
1. Strayer University will only accept transfer credit into undergraduate programs for courses in which the student received a grade of "C" (2.0 quality points) or better.
2. Strayer University will accept transfer credit into undergraduate programs for courses in which the student received a grade of “D” if the student completed a degree program at that specific college or university.
3. Strayer University will accept "P" (Pass) grades for transfer credit when the pass grade is given academic credit.
1. Strayer University will only accept transfer credit into the graduate program for courses in which the student has received a grade of "B" (3.0 quality points) or better.
2. A minimum grade point average of 2.75 is required for admission into the graduate program. If the student’s undergraduate GPA is below the 2.75 requirement, a calculation will be made of the student’s last 22 courses in the undergraduate program to determine acceptance.
3. For graduate programs, if a student's undergraduate GPA is below the 2.75 requirement or the GPA of the last 22 credits is below 2.75, the transcripts must be reviewed and approved by the Campus Dean prior to evaluation by TEC. The approved evaluation from the Campus Dean must accompany the undergraduate transcripts when they are sent to TEC for evaluation.
4. To fulfill undergraduate prerequisite requirements in Strayer University graduate programs, Strayer University will accept credit from courses in which the student has received a grade of “D”.
