Why Major in IT?
The world is surrounded by computer technology! The study of information technology (IT) is about harnessing computer technology to serve the needs of business, government, healthcare, education, E-commerce, manufacturing, entertainment, and other sectors.
The BS in Information Technology degree prepares students to become future IT professionals with knowledge and practical hands-on expertise in current and emerging technologies and to grow into leadership positions or pursue research or graduate studies in the field.
The program is career-oriented and flexible; it lets students choose their own path to success. Through its core curriculum and choice of concentration areas in Network/Database/Web, Accounting, Business, Computer Science, and Medical Informatics, students will gain technical competency to assume a variety of IT jobs in areas such as network and system administration, information security, database applications, web development, software integration, and helpdesk/end-user support and work in a broad spectrum of sectors such as government, business, healthcare, education, and manufacturing.
The Information Technology (IT) program offers both a major and a minor in IT. Upon completion of General Studies, pre-major and major core course requirements, students may choose one of the five application domain concentration areas in Network/Database/Web, Accounting, Business, Computer Science, and Medical Informatics.
