Stage I courses

This major begins officially at Stage II, but students are advised to take the following Stage I courses to gain entry into the necessary Stage II courses:

  • COMPSCI 101 Principles of Programming and COMPSCI 105 Principles of Computer Science
  • MATHS 108 General Mathematics 1 or MATHS 150 Advancing Mathematics 1

Information Systems is available in a BSc/BCom conjoint degree, but only as a major on the BCom side of the conjoint.

Doing a double major with Information Systems

If you choose to do a double major in your BSc, we recommend the following subjects to complement Information Systems: Computer Science, Logic and Computation, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology and Statistics.
