Accelerated BBA-CISS to MS-ISS

Undergraduate students may earn credit toward the Master of Science in Information Systems and Security (MS-ISS) degree while completing a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree in Computer Information Systems and Security (CISS) through the CISS Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s (ABM) degree program.  Students accepted into the CISS ABM program will be eligible to take two courses (six credit hours) from the list of MS-ISS courses below concurrently with their undergraduate courses.  These two courses will count toward both the MS-ISS degree and the advanced CISS-related course requirement in the undergraduate CISS degree.  The graduate courses also allow undergraduate students to build specific career-oriented focus areas that expand on advanced undergraduate course work.

Students in the CISS Accelerated Bachelor-to-Master (ABM) degree program must adhere to the following program restrictions, admission requirements, and deadlines:

Restrictions

  1. Maximum number of master’s level courses that can be taken: 2

    ENGL 1314  Composition II
    MATH 1304 College Algebra
    CISS 1310    Current Concepts of Information and Computer Technology
    CISS 1315    Computer Programming Logic and Design
    CISS 1341    Current Concepts of Computer Hardware

    *Note: CISS 8302, CISS 8303, CISS 8304, and CISS 8305 do not count toward the undergraduate Cyber Security Certificate.
  4. Students may take no more than 3 credit hours of graduate courses per semester.
  5. Students must be concurrently enrolled in at least 6 credit hours of undergraduate courses.
  6. Students must receive a B- or better in graduate courses in order for the class to count toward a master’s degree. (Courses with a grade lower than B- will need to be repeated in the master’s program.)
  7. Students must receive a grade of C- or better for graduate courses to count toward the undergraduate major.
