MIS Opens to CHED Scholars
The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has added the Master in Information System (MIS) program of Silliman University on its list of accredited programs for its Faculty Development Program (FDP).
FDP provides opportunities of graduate studies to college teachers in the country. This supports the CHED requirement for all teachers at the higher level to have at least a masters degree in the field in which they teach.
Silliman is one of few delivering institutions in the country selected to administer graduate programs to CHED FDP scholars. MIS is the eighth graduate program in Silliman where FDP scholars can enroll in. The other programs are: MS Biology, Master in Biology (non-thesis), MA History, MA Anthropology, MA Sociology, MA Psychology and MA English.
MIS prepares graduate students for industrial practice in project management, information systems planning and design, and development and management of technical personnel. It is hosted at the College of Computer Studies, a CHED-designated Center of Development in Information Technology Education.
