Information Technology
Note: For purposes of meeting program requirements,
all foundations courses will count as six credits towards the major
or minor.
The departments of Mathematics and Statistics,
Computer Science, Philosophy, Political Science and the divisions
of Social Science and Humanities offer a pattern of study that combines
departmental specialization within the field of information technology.
The Information Technology Program is housed in the Department of
