GRCC Program:


The Computer Information Systems program provides students with the courses needed to seek employment as local area network administrators and providers of some types of technical support; the program also prepares students for transfer into four-year baccalaureate degree programs in computer programming, leading to careers in programming, systems analysis (and development), consulting, and management in computer information systems.

The employment outlook for careers in this growing, dynamic, technologically rich field is likely to remain strong. Students seeking work immediately upon graduation from GRCC should expect to find employment in smaller organizations or in supporting roles of larger organizations. Students expecting long-term employment in programming and beyond should plan on a minimum of a four-year degree, with career opportunities thereafter dependent on job performance and perhaps additional education.

Strict adherence to the ethics of computer usage is expected of all Computer Applications students.

Applications Software


(Code 146)

This degree provides students with the courses needed to seek employment in the field of computer applications.

The AA degree is a transfer degree, requiring English classes taken from the English Department (EN) rather than from the Business Department (BA). GRCC participates in a Three Plus One baccalaureate program with some universities. Under this program, students take their first three years at GRCC and the fourth year at the participating university.

Students with advanced degrees may also be employed as computer information managers.

Transfer Opportunities:


The Transfer Guide for many bachelor’s degree majors offered at Michigan colleges and universities is available at the Counseling and Career Center and online at www.grcc.edu.
