The central goal of the Information Technology B.S. degree program in the College of Professional Studies is to provide students the opportunity to obtain an excellent information technology education. Recognizing that computer systems and software technology are now integral to organizations of virtually any size, the degree program in information technology is designed to provide the student with broad knowledge and skills in existing information technologies, in new and emerging technologies (and the application and integration of these technologies), and in the administrative practices used in the effective management of these technologies. The program is designed to be broad enough that students will be prepared to pursue careers in technical project management and consulting, as well as in computer and information systems administration and management.
The program will prepare graduates to:
Demonstrate knowledge of the functions and processes of computer systems, communications systems, and applications software.
Apply information systems principles and practices to solve a variety of technical problems.
Demonstrate the acquisition of knowledge, experience, and values needed to become lifelong learners, and be prepared, upon graduation, either to enter the job market or to continue on to further study in the field of information technology.
Demonstrate proficiency in a second, complementary area of academic strength by mastering an information technology-related option within the main program. (Not required for the degree)
