  2. 2. Agenda • What is a Minor? • Why minor in Information Systems? • Are there good jobs? • What courses do I need? • What is the quality of the department offering the minor? • What do students think of the courses? • Who should I contact?
  3. 3. A Minor? • What is a minor? – A minor is a set of courses that allows you to concentrate your studies in a certain area. – Minors combine with your major to enhance your marketability and ability to get a job. – For undergraduates majoring in GSU’s College of Arts & Sciences or other GSU colleges, a minor can be earned by taking only 5 courses. • Who can have a minor? – Any undergraduate student with a major outside the College of Business is eligible for a minor.

  6. 6. Why Minor in Information Systems? • Information Systems (IS) is the use of computers and information to enable people and organizations to be more creative and productive and it develops skills in: 1. identifying the needs of an individual or organization, 2. designing and develop systems to meet those requirements, and 3. rolling out these systems to solve real-world problems. – You would learn how to apply the latest technology to improve the delivery of products and services while insuring that the systems are secure. • Information Systems is distinct from computer science (a department in the College of Arts & Sciences) in that it is much more business-oriented. – Computer scientists focus more on computer hardware, computer languages, and operating and specialized systems software.
