Abstract

Computer science and information systems are interrelated disciplines that both cover the technical and funcational aspects of computing. They are fields of study in high demand by students and employers. Yet, many colleges do not have the resources to offer multiple computing departments. So, professional organizations have developed model curriculums to help define the knowledge necessary for information technology majors. This paper provides a discussion of model IS and CS curricula. It is hoped that IT departments will be able to develop an information technology curriculum, which suits their student’s needs.
