The 37-credit MS in Information Technology programs are intended to prepare students who may have little undergraduate experience in CS or IT for successful careers in the field in both the U.S. and abroad.
Along with a rigorous core curriculum, students have the option of pursuing one of two tracks of study, management or computing. Both tracks are distinguished from other IT programs in a number of ways, including:
- A highly applied approach, with emphasis on hands-on learning;
- Requirement of a capstone experience, which is designed around the academic and professional goals of the individual student;
- Incorporation of emerging technologies into all coursework;
- Emphasis on a collaborative and teamwork approach;
- Development of skills in technology leadership;
- Deeper specialization in either management or computing;
- Elective coursework for management track students from other professional-based programs, including Communication and International Commerce and Policy.
