Background Information:

The Information Technology program prepares students to be leaders in the field of Information Technology. The common characterization of an information technologist is as the “user’s advocate” in the computing world. Information technologists approach technology from the user’s point of view rather than from the technology’s point of view and tend to think of technology and computing as powerful tools for solving problems rather than ends in themselves. IT students tend to care more about how people use computers for solutions than about how computers work “under the hood.” Information Technology complements existing programs in Business, Computer Science, and Communication, and can be combined with widely varied programs such as Theatre with Integrated Media Arts, Environmental Science with the GIS certificate and Biology with the Genomics Leadership certificate.

The Business and Information Technology program combines key elements of the IT program and Business from the Accounting Business and Economics department.

The program in Computer Science develops problem solving and analytical skills through the study and implementation of algorithms, systems design and software development on modern computation platforms and provides for students to skills that adapt well to the fast changing technologies of today and the future. The Computer Science program is recommended for those students considering graduate work in the technology fields.

The Integrated Media Arts program is a flexible interdisciplinary POE combining areas in IT, Communication, and Arts that prepares student for work in varied media production careers. Students can focus their programs in the creative, critical analysis or technology management aspects of digital media.
