Dual Major (B.S.) in Software Applications and Systems Development and Information Systems

This program’s strength is in the liberal arts tradition – students receive broad exposure to other disciplines with a solid foundation in developing software applications and systems. A distinctive feature is a requirement to minor in another academic discipline. The SASD program combines the strengths of Le Moyne's computer science and information systems programs in a complementary way while adhering to the latest curriculum guidelines for software engineering.

The software applications and systems development (SASD) program combines software programming and software design from the computer science (CS) program with business analysis and project planning from the information systems (IS) program. A significant difference between the SASD and CS programs are in the mathematics requirements. The SASD program requires a student to take either Mathematics for Business Majors or Brief Calculus while the CS program requires a student to take Calculus I. A significant difference between the SASD and IS programs is that the SASD program requires a student to earn a minor in any academic discipline, while the IS program requires a student to take the Business core courses (which is similar to earning a minor in business administration).

Le Moyne College expects its software applications and systems development graduates:

  • Can demonstrate critical thinking skills, apply problem solving techniques, and construct various software artifacts as prescribed by a software development process.
  • Are prepared for continued growth as a computing professional, are able to apply what they have learned, and can communicate their knowledge to others in an ethically responsible manner.
  • Are prepared to work individually or in a collaborative environment.

If students take CSC 165 Developing Decision Support Applications With Visual Basics instead of the other MIS courses, they can use their liberal art elective. In this case, their liberal art elective will have only 3  remaining credits left, but their total number of credits will remain as 122-123. But if students take other MIS courses other than CSC 165 Developing Decision Support Applications With Visual Basics, their liberal art elective will have 6 remaining credits left, but their total number of credits will be 125-126.
