Informatics major with a cognate in busines?

3ajeeb3ajeeb Registered User Posts: 147 Junior Member

i'm interested in majoring in informatics with a cognate in business. Is this major considered a hard or easy one? I have been always interested in business and technology so I thought this would make a great combination. However, does this major require a lot of math and science courses like for instance Computer Science? Is this degree as good as an MIS?

    My D is an informatics major with a different cognate area. The general ed requirements are very similar to general ed requirements in COAS and Kelley. A couple of math classes, finite and stats, are required. While computer science is not required, you will be required to do some programming and create websites in your courses. You do have to take a couple of science courses including a lab course. One of those can be a psychology course though.

    As to whether it's an easy or hard major, that will depend upon you.

    An MIS is a Master's Degree so you are talking apples and oranges. I personally don't feel like one degree, no matter what it is, is "better" than another. Do what you love.

    Oh no, by MIS I meant: a BS in Management information system, its still an undergraduate degree.
