CMIS 3001 - Computing and Society♦


(5 cr.)
There are invariably challenges in the aggressive world of information technology (IT) requiring those in the field to understand and adhere to a professional code of ethics. Students in this course are introduced to the interaction of information systems with core social concerns, including privacy, democracy, equity, security, economic progress, and intellectual property rights. Students learn to consider the social, ethical, and legal considerations inherent in the design and use of information systems. They also examine real-world and hypothetical case studies for a practical approach to applying the professional code of ethics to the field.
Prerequisites
