Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Information Technology

The B. S. degree in Computer Information Technology (CIT) is designed for students interested in professional careers involving the design, implementation and support of solutions to informational technology infrastructure needs.

The B. S. in CIT program requires a total of 120 units, including general education requirements, major core and a 15+ unit domain emphasis package, composed of a sequence of courses from a breadth discipline.  The domain emphasis is normally satisfied by completion of a minor in a program of the student's choice. In cases where declaration of a minor is not feasible, students can instead complete a sequence of courses from that same program of study that includes at least 15 units, of which at least 9 units are upper division. Students cannot choose Computer Science or any program from the College of Business and Economics for their domain emphasis program area. A CIT major must complete a minimum of 18 residency units of upper division CIT program courses; this is in addition to all other institutional residency requirements. Since CIT majors cannot declare a domain emphasis in business, an alternative option for students interested in that combination of courses is the B. S. in Information Systems major with IT option (BS in IS/IT) offered by the Department of Accounting and Information Systems in the College of Business and Economics.
