Additional Notes

Advising Notes

  • GWS, GQ, GA, GH, GS, GN and GHA are codes used to identify General Education requirements.
  • US, IL, and US;IL are codes used to designate courses that satisfy University United States/International Cultures requirements. All students are required to take one IL and one US course before graduation. A course designated as US;IL may be used as a US or an IL, not both.
  • W suffix signifies the course satisfies the University Writing Across the Curriculum requirement.

This option requires the student to work closely with an adviser to choose appropriate supporting courses which allow for a flexible academic program and a breadth of technical specialization.

Program Notes

Supporting Courses (15 credits): This option requires the student to work closely with an adviser to choose appropriate supporting courses which follow a coherent theme in information sciences and technology and which allow for a flexible academic program and a breadth of technical specialization.

Students must also complete an internship (IST 295A or IST 295B). This one-credit course, usually completed over the summer, represents 150 hours of a supervised experience in an IT position. The course can be repeated, and up to three credits can be applied toward the degree. It is recommended that students engage in as many internship opportunities as possible. Note: If the student intends to later pursue a bachelor’s degree in IST, he/she should opt to complete IST 495 instead of IST 295. IST 495 is a one-credit course which represents 300 hours of a supervised experience in an IT position. The IST BS degree requires IST 495; IST 295 does not meet the requirements.
