In this paper, we compare and contrast accreditation criteria and curricular recommendations of four different computing programs, namely Computer Science (CS), Information Systems (IS), Software Engineering (SE) and Information Technology (IT). The paper presents analysis at a level of program intentions in an effort to highlight the similarities and differences among programs in computing. A better understanding of the programs in computing can lead to more principled answers to the questions about possible standardization of relevant coursework.
