Minor in Information Technology
With computer-related skills in high demand, USM's Lewiston-Auburn College (LAC) has joined forces with Central Maine Community College (CMCC) in Auburn to offer a minor in information technology. This program gives students the opportunity to combine their academic background with computer technology and networking courses. Students will gain general knowledge of computing in the PC environment and also develop specific networking, installation, and information development skills. This minor can be substituted for the LOS concentration or be taken separately as a minor by students in any degree program.
