Overview

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.
