CS is Computer Science - CIS is Computer Information
Systems. Are they different? Mostly yes: CIS is more about
business/management and CS is more about science (theory
and abstraction). The main programming language of CIS is
still COBOL while C++ still rules CS (there are exceptions,
of course). At the univerisity
graduated from (CS major), the CS drop outs usually became
CIS majors. Both programs required higher math, but CIS
had easier calculus courses. They also had/have better
facilities and more money than the CS department. Damned
