The CIS minor has been specifically designed for non-technical majors who want to learn more about how technology can improve their personal and professional productivity. Students in the CIS minor take a set of required and elective courses in areas such as web-design, desktop publishing, multi-media, computer graphics, geographic information systems, computer-aided drafting and digital video production. Almost all professions today require their employees to be proficient with computers–not just ‘literate.’ The CIS minor is a valuable addition to any WKU major.
