University Majors

California State University, Channel Islands
Information Technology B.S.

This BSIT program is specifically designed to provide an avenue of advancement for students with associate degrees in a technology discipline such as networking, computer security, or computer system administration. This program does not have the rigor of mathematical analysis, design, or object-oriented programming found in a typical BS in Computer Science, nor does it have the depth of business systems analyses found in a degree in a typical BA in Business. Rather, the program is meant to satisfy the need that sits between these two extremes, emphasizing the fastest growing segments of the both: Web Systems, Databases, and Networks. For a foundation, the BSIT program draws from both camps: mathematics, science, and computer programming from Computer Science, and business organization and project management from Management Information Systems. From there it adds depth in Web Programming and Technology, Database Theory and Design, and Data Communications and Networking, while allowing for area concentrations in any of these or related areas such as e-Commerce, Computer Security, and Multimedia. Students entering this program are expected to have already attained an associate degree in a technology area (or the equivalent), which is CSU GE certified, including courses in: Probability and Statistics, first course in a laboratory science (Physics, Chemistry, or Biology), first course in a programming language such as C, Java (preferred), or C++, Computer Architecture and Assembly Language.
