The Information Technology Program at UMass Amherst seeks to educate a broad spectrum of students to be the leading IT practitioners and thinkers. 107 courses, offered by eight schools and colleges, contribute to our curriculum. The IT Program also coordinates the annual Information & Communication Technology Summit and collaborates to facilitate the Open Education Initiative, as well as, outreach through Five College, Inc. & local colleges.
The Information Technology Minor at UMass allows students to pursue a major discipline of their choice and complement that study with the IT Minor. The curriculum includes courses on technologies and technical capabilities along with courses that focus on the application of IT in particular disciplines. Some courses turn the lens around and apply knowledge gained from diverse departments across campus-such as Law, Art, and Economics.
