About the Minor

The minor is designed to provide students with a multidisciplinary understanding of the role and basic mechanics of information technology in the contemporary workplace. Information technology specialists learn how to design and model information systems and business processes, plan and manage information systems projects, and program and test the resulting systems.

Students develop core competencies in their primary area of study and broaden their horizons as they interact with others from different disciplinary backgrounds on real-world systems projects. Students completing the minor will be well prepared for employment in technology-oriented environments and will also understand how to be thought leaders as information technology applications continue to evolve in organizations and society.
