I looked at other schools with communication programs like Syracuse and Notre Dame, but after I visited Curry on Accepted Student Day, saw the radio station and met the folks who worked there, it was a no-brainer.

Information Technology Curriculum

The Information Technology major is designed to provide students with a broad knowledge base utilizing various technologies such as database, networking, business applications, programming and the production of web pages. Students will learn the theories and processes inherent in technology that are necessary to successfully meet their personal and professional challenges. Students may decide to manage networks, design and oversee databases, develop web pages, provide help desk support, design and produce software (including Smartphone software) or own their own small businesses. The Information Technology major is also a perfect complement to a minor in a variety of disciplines to enable the students to understand the interrelatedness of various fields of study. Some recommended minors include: Business Management, Design or Communication.

The final component of the major will be the Senior Seminar; where students complete an integrated project, which will showcase their knowledge of technology across multiple areas. The project can be used as a career search tool where students can exhibit their distinct technology abilities and how they relate to a professional setting. The project requirement will include writing, and technical skills samples, as well as a self-reflection component.

Grade Requirements for Information Technology majors:
A grade lower than a C- in any of the core courses signals inadequate performance in the major. Students who receive a grade lower than a C- will be required to repeat the course.
