Information Technology in the Arts and Sciences Minor

Go to the Interdisciplinary Studies Department 

Christopher Mauriello, Coordinator

The Information Technology in the Arts and Sciences minor is designed to deepen students’ skills, concepts and capabilities in information technology within their major discipline. As an interdisciplinary minor, the coursework includes foundation and elective courses taught by faculty with particular expertise in integrating information technology into their disciplines. The goal of the minor is to promote “fluency” in information technology so that students are better prepared to creatively use information technology in their current research and study as well as future graduate study and/or professional careers.

A total of 15 credits hours are required for the minor, 6 credits hours consist of two required foundations courses, ITC 181 /IDS 181 - Fluency in Information Technology  and IDS 271 - Information Technology, Society and Culture . The remaining 9 credit hours are to be chosen from the following list of approved departmental electives in consultation with the Coordinator of the minor.
