Ball State University’s Center for Information and Communication Sciences has launched an online master of science degree. The school says the program is 38 credit hours and can be completed in 18 months.
The traditional on-campus degree program is still available, however expanding to an online platform will allow CICS to reach more students and meet the demand for qualified professionals in high-tech fields. The program is designed to be adaptable and prepare students to be ready for jobs that involve ever-changing technology.
“The types of roles that will be most protected from the effects of automation involve managing people, high-level expertise, and unpredictable environments. These jobs will be at a high skill-level and require significant creativity, adaptability, and comfort with rapid change. Our program prepares students with the ability to think critically and to solve novel problems,” said Dennis Trinkle, CICS director and director of the Applied Research Institute at Ball State.
