CIS Concentration for TESU - CarpeDiem8 - 05-16-2019

Hey All!

Trying to figure out if I can get a concentration in Computer Information Systems all through alt credit. Anyone willing to review and add?

Required courses:
Introduction to Computer Information Systems OR Computer Concepts and Applications 3
Management Information Systems 3
Programming Languages 6
Students select six(6) credits from the following:
Computer Organization (3)
Computer Security and Information Theory (3)
Database Management (3)
Data Center Management (3)
Data Communications Systems (3)
Information Systems using Microcomputers(3)
System Analysis and Design (3)
Operating Systems (3)
Operations Research (3)

So here's what I've matched so far:

Introduction to Computer Information Systems OR Computer Concepts and Applications 3

Study.com options - 

Computer Science 102: Fundamentals of Information Technology = TESU CMP-202 : Foundations of Information Technology 3
Computer Science 103: Computer Concepts & Applications = TESU COS-101 : Introduction to Computers 3

Management Information Systems 3 

Study.com/other options - 

???? Not sure!

Programming Languages 6:

Study.com options - 

COMPSCI 113: Programming in Python - new one added today!
Computer Science 111: Programming in C = TESU COS-116 : C Programming 3
Computer Science 112: Programming in C++ = TESU COS-213 : C++ Programming 3

Students select six(6) credits from the following:

Study.com options -

Computer Science 302: Systems Analysis & Design = TESU CIS-320 : System Analysis & Design I 3
Computer Science 303: Database Management = TESU CIS-311 : Database Management
Computer Science 305: Operating Systems = TESU COS-240 : Operating Systems 3

Thanks!

The Study.com programming in C course asks for a pretty advanced final project, and looking at the course materials i was pretty sure i couldn't learn enough to be able to do it. I signed up for a Udemy course on C programming and am going to do that alongside it.

The Database Management class looks doable, it is just SQL.

They are also letting me use Study.com Digital Marketing and Advertising as an area of study elective for CIS, so i wonder if they wuold let someone use it for the certificate as well.

Interesting, Sarah! Are you going for the BSBA-CIS?

Thanks!

There is a management information systems dsst, as well as straighterline, ed4credit and study.com I believe.

Also, Idk what it would count for but onlinedegree's intro to programming is only $9.

Oh, you're right! It's just not on the TESU/Study.com equivalency page. thanks for that!!

Business 303: Management Information Systems

Study.com has a Java course but i was told there is no TESU equivalency (which seems dumb)

Last I checked, it transfers to tesu as intro to programming

Yeah, that's the same concern I have and I also can't see me ever using C or C++ either on top of it.

I am actually interested in the Programming in Python, so I'm glad they've added that today!


Wonder if I can use these under "Programming" requirements! Then it looks like everything would fit!

Computer Science 204: Database Programming

Computer Science 113: Programming in Python

Java is cray cray anyway, so no loss there. LOL!



Thanks for your help, All!

Hmmm, when i go to that Python course page, it doesn't show that it's evaluated for college credit. maybe it's too new


RE: CIS Concentration for TESU - CarpeDiem8 - 05-16-2019

Right! Brand new!

Hopefully transfers into TESU fine, too!
