Curriculum

Our Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to take your Computer Information Technology classes beginning in your first semester. By the time you finish your first year, you will have taken upward of five courses related to your major!

Because of the extensive hands-on learning that takes place in the first two years of this program, students in this major are highly sought after for paid internships and positions after their second year and have a variety of career options.
