Welcome to CIS

Perhaps more than ever, businesses are in need of employees who can gather, analyze and disseminate data while also handling technology changes as they arise. The computer information systems program at Nicholls State University prepares students to enter such cutting-edge careers by teaching them technical and managerial skills as well as offering students opportunities for hands-on experience (please click here to sample).

Aside from their coursework, CIS students at Nicholls experiment with installing and testing local area networks in a specialized computer networking laboratory. As the business world moves more toward a paperless society that increasingly demands data analyses, the demand for computer information systems graduates with experience increases.

Thank you for viewing our website. We hope that you decide to choose Nicholls to further your education and allow us to help you achieve your career goals. We look forward to working with you.


Internships are strongly encouraged for upper-level students. Employers both in the local and national markets have hired our student interns nearing the completion of their degree. This hands-on experience allows students to reinforce what they have learned and get a jump start on their career.
