The Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems has responded to the growing market for competent information technology (IT) professionals by developing the BS in Information Technology. Beginning fall 2010, students will be able to pursue this exciting new degree program characterized by flexibility, hands-on practical projects, and a real-world internship option. The program allows them to combine an area of personal interest with a solid foundation in IT in preparation for careers that are satisfying, financially rewarding and in demand.


Program and Courses
Students enrolled in the BS in Information Technology are required to take foundation courses in hardware and software systems, networking, database administration, security, and Web and digital media. In order to gain greater depth, the program allows the student to explore one or more specialized areas such as information management, networking, security, Web and digital media, and problem-solving and systems as a career focus. Pursuit of an interdisciplinary focus in an area of their own choosing provides students with a context for the use of technology in their intended careers. Possible interdisciplinary areas include criminal justice or management science but students have the option, with departmental oversight, of drawing on their interest in the arts, sciences, writing, or education to create their own interdisciplinary sequence. Students are also at liberty to complete multiple career or interdisciplinary concentrations or to explore any number of subject areas of interest by applying the generous number of free elective credits available to them. A capstone project that integrates all that the student has learned or a real world, supervised internship completes the program.
