At Champlain College we design our online programs for working adults, and there's nowhere this is more evident than in our curricula. The computer and information systems (CIS) bachelor's program is comprised of online CIS courses, professional courses, and general education courses that provide foundational knowledge and immediate take-aways that can be applied on the job. These courses are focused, relevant, and delivered in an accelerated 7-week format.

Earn a Certificate Along the Way

In addition, we've designed this program so you can earn a certificate in a chosen specialization area of computer & information systems before you've earned your degree. Talk to your academic advisor for more details.
