The Department of Business Computer Information Systems educates business computer information systems designers and systems analysts for careers in industry and government. Two strong undergraduate programs are available for students who intend to pursue careers in the growing business computing field.
The department offers undergraduate and graduate programs in the following areas:
General requirements for the BBA are listed in the "General University Requirements " and the "University Core Curriculum Requirements " in the Academics section of this catalog and under "Bachelor of Business Administration" in the College of Business Administration section.
The professional field in decision sciences requires 18 hours of the following courses.
BCIS 4650 and BUSI 4660 (or MKTG 4280 or FINA 4500, if approved in advance by the departmental undergraduate coordinator). The remaining hours are selected from 3000- or 4000-level business courses. BCIS 4800 cannot be used as a supporting course. Any exceptions to this policy must be approved in writing in advance by the departmental undergraduate coordinator.
A candidate for the degree must complete 33 hours of business administration courses in residence, of which 15 hours must be in the professional field of study. C programming (CSCI 1040 or CSCI 1110) must be completed by each student in this program. Students are encouraged to use free electives to meet professional goals.
Students interested in the theoretical and mathematical science of computing should see the Department of Computer Sciences.
1. It is recommended that students selecting decision sciences as a professional field for the BBA degree meet at least one of the following standards:
a. be in the top 25 percent of their high school graduating class; or
b. attain a minimum score of 920 recentered on the SAT I or 20 on the ACT.
2. It is required that students selecting decision sciences as a professional field have a 2.5 GPA in all courses completed at UNT and have a transfer GPA of at least 2.5.
3. A grade of C or better is required in each previously taken BCIS/MSCI or CSCI course for enrollment in any senior-level BCIS/MSCI course.
4. Academic requirements for graduation with a professional field in decision sciences include:
a. a minimum GPA of 2.5 in all course work at UNT;
b. a minimum GPA of 2.5 in advanced hours (3000- and 4000-level courses) attempted in the professional field and supporting courses; and
c. a grade of C or better in each BCIS/MSCI course taken in the professional field, supporting decision sciences courses or career track.
