Differences Between CS and CIS

The table below categorizes some of the differences between the CS and CIS degrees

Computer Science Computer Information Systems
CS Courses Requires 16 CS courses, 13 at the higher level. Requires 14 CS courses, 13 of which are essentially the same as for the CS degree.
Business None Required. Requires 6 courses in the business: accounting, economics, management, and marketing classes. 
Math Requires 6 math courses including pre-calculus,2 calculus courses, and three others that require a background in calculus: probability and statistics,linear algebra, and operations research or numerical analysis. Four math courses are required including algebra, 2 "Practical Calculus" courses (which are much less rigorous than Calculus) and an algebra-based statistics course.
Science Three lab-based science courses are required. These science courses are the "major's versions"of Biology, Chemistry, or Physics. Two of the courses must be in the same area.  Two lab-based general science courses which come from a broader range of courses (Astronomy,Biology, Chemistry, Geography, Geology, Physics) are required. These courses are not as in depth as the ones required by the CS degree. 
Foreign Language  None Required. None Required.
Jobs As well as preparing the student for jobs in the business and government environment, a CS graduate might have an edge over CIS in jobs in engineering, scientific, or more pure science fields.  Geared more towards software development jobs in the business and government environment (which is most of the jobs). 
GraduateSchool  The CS degree adequately prepares graduates for graduate work in CS or CIS.  A CIS graduate would be prepared to enter a CIS/MIS graduate degree program. However, the CIS graduate would probably require more mathematics to enter a graduate CS program.
