Bachelor of Science (B.S.)
College: College of BusinessDepartment: Computer and Information Technology
The Bachelors of Science in Computer & Information Technology (CIT) is designed to prepare students for careers as IT professionals. Our graduates hold positions as network administrators, application programmers, website developers, database architects, operations schedulers, and technical support specialists, to name a few.
Of particular interest to potential students who already have practical IT experience should be the alignment of many CIT courses with industry certifications. Consequently, students can simultaneously complete their major requirements and prepare for industry certification exams. This further makes it possible for students to receive course credit for certifications already earned.
The Department of CIT, provides instruction and conducts research addressing information systems and the technology supporting those systems. We are involved also, through technology transfer, in assisting the University with its economic development mission for the Delta Region and beyond. In addition, as consultants, we serve other constituents within the University and around the local community.
