Information Technology is a program in the Nazareth College School of Management.  The program offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology.

The mission of the Information Technology major is to provide students with the technical, social, and business skills needed to gain entry level positions in the modern organization, and to be leaders in the integration and use of technology in current and future business environments.

Successful completion of the Information Technology program will allow students to:

  • Acquire a foundation of computer and information systems knowledge and skills which will allow them to be successful in a modern business environment, help them acquire new skills as technologies evolve and find technological solutions which are technically, practically and ethically sound.
  • Acquire sufficient knowledge of business and management to understand general business processes and functions and the effect of technology upon them.
  • Understand the wider implications and influences of economics, ethics and globalization on business processes and functions.
  • Gain an understanding of the key role technology plays in both tactical and strategic business planning and implementation.
  • Develop skills in the areas of communication (oral and written),
    critical thinking, analysis and teamwork.

According the Occupational Outlook Handbook, the employment of computing professionals is expected to increase much faster than average as technology becomes more sophisticated and organizations continue to adapt and integrate these technologies.

Job increases will be driven by very rapid growth in computer system design and related services, which is projected to be one of the fastest-growing industries in the U.S. economy.

Information Technology Senior Experience

CIS 483 - 484 - Internship Capstone Experience, provides the senior experience for the IT major. Students will perform part-time work for a local company. The student will also complete projects and/or submit papers which will give them the opportunity to make connections between the knowledge and insights gained from the Perspectives I and II courses and those courses within the major.
