Course Lists

Course lists provide a consolidated resource of classes taught each semester that are approved for various tracks in the IS Major.

The IS Major offers course lists each semester to assist students in choosing courses to complete the major. Students should choose the list for their Option for major requirements (Core and Issues courses). For Electives in the Major, students may choose courses from the Issues list of any Option.  Please note that the Global Commons/Global Environment track is not available to declare; however, students may still take courses from these lists.

We strive to maintain accurate lists. Occasionally courses on these courses lists are canceled or changed after we have compiled our lists for the semester. Most commonly, these late changes will not be reflected in the course lists.

We begin preparing the semester lists once the timetable has been released. Be patient: we post them as soon as humanly possible!

Check the Archived Course Lists for the past offerings.
