Open House to learn more about a master's degree in Information and Communication Sciences, November 1st.

October 24, 2023

If you are a senior and considering graduate school, a master's in Information and Communication Sciences (CICS) can be your bridge to a brighter future. A professional master's degree in CICS prepares you for a career at the intersection of technology, business, and leadership. What? You don't know anything about technology? No worries. If you are a hard worker, a team player, and motivated to succeed, you can learn the technology part. If you have a technical undergraduate degree that's great too.  We take all backgrounds because we are prepared to meet you where you are.  The business and leadership skills are taught directly in courses and woven into project opportunities and professional development activities. CICS is not for everyone, but stop in to see if it might be the exact right option for you.

Join us on Wednesday, November 1 from 3 - 4 p.m., Ball Communication Bldg. 212D to learn more. Our faculty and students will show you what the program offers, discuss admission requirements, and answer your questions.  We will have snacks too.
