Upon completion of General Studies, pre-major and major core course requirements, students may choose one of the two application domain concentration areas in Network/Database/Web or Medical Informatics, or select a minor from other undergraduate programs at Gallaudet.
IT Major Internship Requirement
One summer or semester internship is required. Students can start the internship program in their sophomore year. Our in-house internship coordinator and faculty advisor will work closely with each student on internship preparation, placement, and follow-up.
Laptop and ACM Student Membership Requirements
IT majors and minors are required to have their own laptops. Check the IT Program website for minimum system configurations for laptops (PC and Apple Mac). They are also required to join Association of Computing Machinery (www.acm.org), the world’s largest professional, educational, and scientific computing society. An annual student membership fee is $19 with many benefits, such as free online books and courses, career advises, job fairs, student and computing professional networks, and conferences.
MAT 130: Three of the four hours count toward the general studies requirement, replacing GSR104; the remaining hour is counted as part of the pre-major course requirements.
Students who select Network/Database/Web or Medical Informatics as a concentration area must take 15 credit hours of the courses listed under Network/Database/Web Concentration Electives or 15 credit hours of the courses listed under Medical Informatics Concentration Electives. If approved by their major advisor, students may fulfill the concentration requirement by completing a minor from another undergraduate program at Gallaudet.
IT Industry Certification
Industry-sponsored IT certifications are highly recommended as it has become a general practice by employers to demand a relevant college degree as well as IT certifications for entry level professional jobs.
