Information Technology (Minor)

Middle Georgia State University's School of Computing offers a minor in Information Technology (IT) for undergraduates enrolled in any discipline or program other than IT. The IT minor is designed for students who wish to develop knowledge and skills in applying as well as integrating current computing technologies to enhance and support their primary field of studies.

Information technology has become increasingly important in such fields as education, nursing, business, biology, history, public service, and communications. Few careers exist today that are not impacted by technology, and graduates in all fields should be prepared to use it to its greatest potential.


A minor in Information Technology provides students with essential skills needed in a variety of fields, including:

  • Enhancing the student's understanding of the fundamentals of information technology.
  • Developing the student's ability to specify, select, and utilize information technology in his or her major field of study.
  • Equipping students with the skills and terminology needed to interact with technology professionals.

The minor in Information Technology contains a total of 15 hours of coursework with a minimum of nine hours in upper division IT courses at Middle Georgia State University.

Grade Requirements: A grade of "C" or better must be earned in all courses used to satisfy the minor.
