Information Technology Minor (M)

Information Technology is the study of computerized problem solving. An IT minor is an excellent supplement to any major as it enhances the student’s problem solving skills and abilities. People who understand computer science concepts are in great demand in our present information age. Note that a business major and a computer science or information technology minor is equivalent to an “MIS” degree offered at many institutions.

Major and Minor in CS and IT

A Computer Science major may minor in Information Technology and an Information Technology major may minor in Computer Science. In order to both major and minor in the Computer Science department, there can be no “double-dipping” of courses. In other words, the same course cannot count toward both the major and the minor. In order for a CS major to complete a minor in IT, the student must complete 18 additional credits of CSC courses. If not completed in the major, the following courses must be completed for the IT minor:

CSC 180Readings in Science & Technolo3
CSC 410Vocation and Ethical Computing3
CSC 426Data Security and Info Assuran3
CSC 430Database & Info Management3

A total of 18 CSC course credits that are not counted within the CS major must be completed. Thus the student will complete 51 credits of CSC courses for the major and an additional 18 credits of CSC courses for the minor.
