The software applications and systems development (SASD) program combines software programming and software design from the computer science (CS) program with business analysis and project planning from the information systems (IS) program. Our program’s strength is in the liberal arts tradition – students receive broad exposure to other disciplines while obtaining a solid foundation in developing software applications and systems. Our program adheres to the latest curriculum guidelines for software engineering. A distinctive feature is a requirement for students to minor in another academic discipline.
A significant difference between the SASD and CS programs are in the mathematics requirements. The SASD program requires a student to take either Mathematics for Business Majors or Brief Calculus while the CS program requires a student to take Calculus I. A significant difference between the SASD and IS programs is that the SASD program requires a student to earn a minor in any academic discipline, while the IS program requires a student to take the Business core courses (which is similar to earning a minor in business administration).
Ask a software engineer about their job and they'll likely mention the cool stuff - developing new apps, discovering defects in code, or designing a new feature into an existing app. What is often not talked about are the activities that lead to the cool stuff - presenting a prototype of a new app, documenting test results, discussing a new feature with a domain expert, or writing a software specification. The SASD program will help you develop the skills necessary to effectively communicate your ideas to others, to appreciate the diversity of roles needed when developing complex software systems, and to perform the technical work that is more directly associated with applications and systems development.
The College offers the following degree options:
All SASD majors take 6 required CS courses and 4 required IS courses. Students must take 2 other courses in either CS or IS. Additional requirements include a Math course, a two-course sequence in a foreign language and completing a minor in another discipline. See the Le Moyne College catalog for a complete description of the requirements to earn a B.A. or B.S. in SASD.
