Major Information

  • Students are required to know and track their degree requirements for graduation or for entrance to a professional school.
  • Coursework listed as “elective” may vary for each student. Students are encouraged to use elective hours toward a minor or toward prerequisites.
  • Students are strongly encouraged to select courses that meet two or more Core or College requirements. For example, a writing intensive literature course could satisfy the Core II Humanities requirement as well as the University writing intensive requirement.
  • Course offerings and course attributes are subject to change semesters. Please consult each semesters schedule of courses for availability and attributes.
  • Math is based on an ACT Mathematics score of 24 or higher. Students with an ACT Mathematics score less than 24 will be placed in the appropriate prerequisite mathematics and science courses.
  • The Computer and Information Technology major is a four-year program that requires a minimum of 120 credit hours, 40 of which must be at the 300-400 level.

Four Year Plan

A major in Computer and Information Technology provides a solid grounding in the information technology field. CIT is a cutting-edge program with courses that are both highly theoretical while also extremely applied in nature. The Area of Emphasis in Computer and Web Application Development focuses on the development of applications for business, industry, and education. Students will learn the software engineering process and project management and learn to program in languages such as C++ and C#. Students also learn to specify, design, and build large-scale software systems for existing hardware.
