Minor in Information Technology
The information technology (IT) minor is a way for students in non-technical majors to bridge the gap between a primarily non-technical education and a technical world. Graduates from a variety of fields are discovering that there is a great need to have computer competency in addition to the knowledge they gain in their major, and the IT minor, which is tailored to grow students' understanding of computer and information technology applications, helps prepares students for the future.
Students who minor in IT must complete a minimum of 20 credits of IT courses. All students must take IT 520, Computer Architecture, as well as an introductory programming course. The other three courses can be chosen from the list below.
Credit toward the minor will only be given for courses passed with C- or better, and a 2.00 grade-point average must be maintained in courses for the minor. Courses taken on the pass/fail basis may not be used for the minor. Students should declare their intent to earn a minor as early as possible and no later than the end of the junior year by consulting with the minor coordinator. During the final term, an application must be made to the dean (of the student's major college) to have the minor shown on the academic record. Students must consult with their major adviser and also the minor coordinator.
