Our approach is to encouage students to major in a field they are passionate about, and then supplement that with an IT Minor. The framework of the IT Minor ensures that students have technical training, understand the human dimensions of IT, and understand how IT impacts, or might impact, their fields. Within this framework, students can choose from a set of 106 courses (and growing) the six courses that are most relevant to them.
IT Minor Requirements
Enrollment into the IT Minor will not be reflected in SPIRE and this may cause issues when registering for courses. SPIRE doesn't track minors of any type and can't verify if the student meets course prerequisites for a given course when attempting to enroll. Students will have to request an enrollment override from the faculty directly.
A Minor Problem
Courses limited to majors and/or it has prerequisites
Courses for the IT Minor must be distributed across four categories:
Our Course Catalog lists courses and their categories.
Student enrollment prior to Sept. 2010:
Student enrollment after Sept. 2009:
The foundation course can only be waived for equivalent coursework or documented and valuated training. We have no way of evaluating learning you may have done on your own through work experience. If you believe you can document equivalent learning, discuss this with the IT advisor.

The IT Capstone is a year-long Course (Honors 499C and Honors 499D) in the Honors College, but it is open to non-honors students. The first semester of the capston courses fullfills the Broadened Inquiry requirement and the second semester is an elective. Since the second semester involves a field project, you cannot count both 499D and an Internship as electives.

Criteria for Review
Note: Requesting a review of a student's course requirements does not qualify as approval of a Declaration of Completion of an Academic Minor by the IT Program or its staff.
