Computer Information Systems Degree?

By rr-travis ·
I was hoping to find coments on the value of a CIS degree for a network administrator. I plan on going back to school soon and have found many employeers of Network Administrators asking for CIS degrees.

My question is why would an employeer want a programmer to maintain the network? Wouldnt someone with an Information Technology degree or Network Administration degree be more suited?

My suggestion

by Aldanatech In reply to Computer Information Syst ...

They probably figured that it would be a lot easier to find a programmer than anything else, but like all else it would be better if you show them you are the right guy for the job. If you're looking for a BS or MS degree in network administration I got just the place were can get it:

BS in Information Technology with a specialization in Network Technology:

http://www.capella.edu/reborn/html/schools/technology/network_bs.aspx

MS in Information Technology with a specialization in Network Architecture and Design:

Hope this helps.

Not really much programming

by montecarlo70 In reply to Computer Information Syst ...

I'm about to retire after 20 years in the Navy and I'm currently working on my CIS BS. It's mostly devoted to systems design and improvements...not as much programming. But then, that depends on what a a firm wants.

Hope this helped.

CIS Tracks...

by jgarcia102066 In reply to Computer Information Syst ...

A few of the Universities near me offer two separate tracks for CIS degrees. One is a programmer track and one is a network management track. The reason some universities do this is because most of the foundational classes for both tracks are identical. It's only when you start attending the upper-division (Junior & Senior) classes that the two tracks diverge.

Hope this helps.

That's interesting. My university didn't break it down like that (Saint Leo)
