CIS 1: Introduction to Computer Information Systems
This class is a general introduction to the use of digital computers and the use of application software. It is a prerequisite for several advanced courses and meets CIS major requirements as well as being acceptable for credit to CSU and UC. The introductory course covers the hardware that makes up the modern digital computer and teaches students the computer systems we use (laptops, desktops, phones, tablets) contain similar parts / internal architecture. The general applications covered in the course (word processors, presentation software, databases) are the foundational tools of education and business. By completing CIS 1 you will learn practical skills and gather information for making informed decisions about personal and professional technology use.
