Full-Time and Part-Time Formats: Students can pursue the MSIS program in either a full-time or part-time format. Full-time students complete the program in three semesters (12 months), and part-time students complete the program in four or more semesters (15+ months). Both formats are designed to meet the needs of working students. All required courses are offered in the evening, so students can continue to gain work experience while in completing the program.
Class Availability: MSIS courses are offered primarily in the evenings. A limited number of daytime electives are available. Once admitted, your academic advisor will contact you to map out a course of study that will match your needs with class schedules.
Master of Science Requirement: MSIS students complete a capstone project to satisfy the Master of Science degree requirement. A master’s thesis is not required.
Enrollment Options: Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters
BS/MS Co-Terminal Degree: The BS/MS co-terminal degree is a unique program available to University of Utah IS majors who would like to pursue the MSIS program concurrently with their undergraduate degree.
