Science changes the way we see the world. Saint Rose graduates change the way we see science.

We’ve created a remarkable environment for continuing studies from the intricacies of software to the science of the mind. Innovation and brilliant careers are born here. How? There’s a science to that, too: renowned, engaged faculty. Small class sizes. Flexible class times. State-of-the-art teaching labs. And a diverse, supportive community.

Here, the subject matter may be objective, but the education is anything but. Our strong student-teacher ratio only tells half the story; faculty members work individually with students to work out an ideal course of study, and maintain a mentor relationship throughout a student’s career. What’s more, faculty collaboration across disciplines—from one program or school to another—helps ensure that a student’s chosen program aligns with his or her dreams.

Our graduate program in Computer Information Systems is the first in the School of Mathematics and Sciences, and a model for others to come. With its cutting-edge computer and teaching labs and a research-based curriculum, the education is comprehensive and always relevant. With its evening and other flexible classes, it’s designed for those who are already in the working world, but aspire to something more.

Saint Rose also makes it easier for you to set off on your new career path. We offer multiple funding and scholarship options (see below); 58% of full-time and 39% of part-time graduate students receive some form of financial assistance. For international students, we offer a diverse, welcoming community, financial support, and post-degree opportunities to stay and work in the U.S.

If there’s an algorithm for success in Computer Information Systems, we’ve found it: all of our graduate program alumni are employed, most in their ideal job.
