Well, you wouldn't get a lot of CS theory in Info Systems--that's not
the point of the major.  I imagine you got a lot more business theory
than a typical CS major would, though.  UVSC CS has a number of theory
classes, some of which are required depending on which CS emphasis
track you take.  Any CS major can use the upper-level ones as
electives, so you can tune your degree quite a bit to your interests
and/or schedule. :)

Oh, and it's ABET, not ABIT.
