Information Science and Technology Electives

Below is a list of the electives available to students following the BS degree in IS&T.  Each semester, we offer electives from this list.  It is also possible to take upper level CS courses as IS&T electives if the student meets the pre-requisites and if they do not overlap with other IS&T courses that the student has taken.  These must be 3000-level or higher and approved by the IS&T faculty advisor prior to registering for the course.
