Computer Information Systems
The Hasan School of Business
The Hasan School of Business offers majors and minors to both business students and non-business students. Business majors may take a minor in a business discipline that is not related to their major discipline, provided that the additional 300/400 credits associated with the minor are in addition to the credits needed to complete their major (i.e., if the major is 120 credits and the additional credits in the minor area are 9, then the total credits to complete the major and the minor will be a minimum of 129). For example, a student earning a BSBA in business management could also minor in accounting or economics.
National Cyber League
The Association for Computing Machinery is a student organization located in the Hasan School of Business and currently has many students who actively participate in community-based computer repair, discounted computer and security certificates, and other various community outreach activities both on campus and off campus.

The association also volunteers time to the community on and off campus.
