Master of Science in Information Technology
Advances in information technology have brought fundamental changes to business and government worldwide. Technology is no longer the exclusive realm of specialists. Managers in organizations that rely on IT must develop knowledge, skills, and abilities in the core areas of IT as well as complementary management knowledge, skills, and abilities. The Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) program is an interdisciplinary degree that achieves these dual educational goals. Students entering the program are expected to be familiar with at least one programming language.

It takes a minimum of 36 semester credit hours to complete the MSIT degree.
