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 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.
