Minor in Information and Communications Technology

This minor is designed to provide students with a variety of courses in information and communications technologies. Most if not all organizations use digital information and communications systems, and to an increasing degree employees are expected to have skills in those areas.

To obtain a minor in a degree or concentration in the Department of Technology, students must take at least nine credits in the minor beyond those used in their major, technical or professional courses in another degree in the Department of Technology, or another minor.

Students can obtain only one minor in a degree or concentration in the Department of Technology, and that minor cannot be in another concentration in their degree.

Only six transfer credits can be used toward a minor in a degree or concentration in the Department of Technology and they must be equivalent to courses in the minor. Transfer courses are subject to review by the minor advisor and subject matter expert.

Any exceptions to this policy must be approved by a vote of the Department faculty.

Minimum of 18 credit hours taken from the list of courses below monitored by a faculty advisor in the Department. The student must declare the minor. Admission to the minor will require the completion of at least 24 credits in the student's major with a grade point average of 2.0. Successful completion of the minor will require a grade point average of 2.0 in the courses making up the minor.
