The Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology is a technical degree program that prepares students in the core competencies of the IT discipline, including problem-solving and programming, networking, database systems, internet and web technologies and information security. The IT major is a suitable choice for students interested in future employment in the areas such as software development and application support, network operations, database management, technical liaison and sales and IT services. Students majoring in IT have the flexibility to add a minor concentration in another degree program, such as business. Or they may take additional courses in the discipline beyond those required for the major, in pursuit of a particular IT program concentration.
