Beginning fall 2011, the departments will offer a 30-credit program that has been both strengthened and updated.The new rigorous curriculum is built on a core of algorithms and computing theory, Internet and web computing, grid and cloud computing, and database systems. It also offers students the flexibility of pursuing one or more focused, in-depth course sequences in cutting edge areas like artificial intelligence, Internet computing, mobile computing, network security, and web security.All technology courses support portable hands-on labs based on computing virtualization so that students can practice on realistic enterprise systems on any computer. Whether you are looking to advance your career or change focus and keep ahead of the latest technologies, this master's is your best choice.Bridge Courses (9 credits) An entering student with limited or no previous background in the field of computer science or programming may be required to take up to 9 credits of prerequisite bridge coursework. A student with a baccalaureate in computer science should be able to waive these prerequisites. For others, some or all of the following courses may be required.CS 502 Fundamental Computer Science I using Java 3CS 504 Fundamental Computer Science II using Java 3CS 506 Computer Systems and Concepts 3Core Requirements (12 credits)CS 608 Algorithms and Computing Theory 3CS 610 Introduction to Parallel and Distributed Computing 3CS 612 Concepts and Structures in Internet Computing 3CS 623 Database Management Systems 3Concentration Options or Free Electives (9 credits) A student may choose to pursue a focused in-depth concentration in a specific area consisting of a three course sequence for a total of 9 credits.

The option to take a business course is limited to one. Please refer to the Lubin School of Business Graduate Catalog at www.pace.edu/lubin.Capstone Project (3 credits) The student must complete the core and 6 credits of knowledge area coursework prior to registering for the capstone project.IS 680 IS Capstone Project 3Total Credits: 36-42Global companies gain a competitive advantage through the methods they use to collect, process, transmit, and disseminate data and information. For now and the foreseeable future, the fastest-growing jobs in our economy come from the field of Infor-mation Systems. The skills, knowledge, and talents of IS personnel separate great companies from their competitors. A Pace Master of Science in Information Systems prepares you to deliver these advantages. You'll benefit whether you are new to Information Systems or if you have an undergraduate degree in the field.The program's foundation and core programs consist of offerings in systems analysis and design, project management, organiza-tional structure, networks and telecommunications, and relevant topics associated with software, hardware, and telecommunica-tions infrastructure.After completion of foundation and core coursework, you will select a 9-credit knowledge area of specialization in either Security and Information Assurance, Telecommunications Management and Technologies, or Database Management and Technologies. The program culminates in a capstone project that integrates all you have learned while pursuing your degree.
