About the Program:
Pierce College's CIS department offers professional/technical degrees and certificates that
prepare graduates to enter the workforce in areas such as junior database administrator,
database developer, business analyst, data analyst network engineer, and junior computer
programmer/web developer. Students take classes leading to one-year certificates and/or
two-year professional/technical degrees. Students who are interested in pursuing a bachelor's
degree may transfer with their first two years completed at Pierce College to Central
Washington University, Western Governors University and others. Classes in our department
are also in demand by current industry professionals who seek to upgrade their skills and
remain relevant in their fields.
Courses taught through our Computer Information Systems Department support three
associate's degree programs: Database Management and Design, and Health Informatics and
Integrated Technology, and Computer Network Engineering. Faculty teach and assess
individual course outcomes, as well as program outcomes, for these degrees. In addition, CIS
supports the Computer Science degree by offering two Computer Science programming
courses designed for transfer students. Faculty teach and assess individual course outcomes,
as well as program outcomes, for these degrees. Faculty also teach the district's five Core
Abilities: Critical, Creative, and Reflective Thinking, Responsibility, Information Competency,
Effective Communication and Multiculturalism.
