Information Technology Minor

The Information Technology Minor can compliment nearly every major as most majors have some degree of involvement with technology.  The minor provides insight into how technology is designed, developed, and implemented, providing a snapshot into the ever-expanding Information Technology field.  There are no special requirements (GPA or class standing) for a student wishing to add the IT minor.
