The BA in Information Management and Systems degree is designed to position graduates at the forefront of information creation, access, analysis, and dissemination. Graduates enjoy IM&S careers in areas such as business, healthcare organizations, government agencies, and educational institutions. The multidisciplinary degree integrates an understanding of computer science, information science, telecommunications, discipline-specific data, information administration, and an ability to recognize relationships between technical systems and social structures. Courses emphasize basic quantitative and qualitative techniques, business functions, effective communication skills, and proactive team interactions. Concentration areas allow students to focus on the application of technology in one of four fields: business, mass media and public relations, education, and health. The IM&S program is ideal for working professionals as it can be completed without attending classes on the Spartanburg campus (although attending day and evening classes in Spartanburg is an option for students). Students will complete a combination of live courses taught in Greenville, online courses taught via the Internet, and transfer courses taught at Greenville Technical College or other institutions.
