Minor in CIT

Minor in Computer and Information Technology

A minor in Computer and Information Technology requires the completion of 24 credit hours of computer technology courses, plus prerequisite requirements in mathematics, and computer applications. Required courses in computer technology are provided in two groupings: (a) core requirements, and (b) a specialty sequence. At least 12 credit hours of the minor must be taken at IUPUI and at least 12 credit hours of the minor must be taken in the CIT program.

Students who wish to complete a minor in Computer and Information Technology must already be accepted as a major by some other department on the IUPUI campus. Students should ask their department's academic advisor whether a minor in computer technology is acceptable with their major field.

Prior to continuing into the specialty sequences, a student must have:

  1. completed the above computer technology minor's prerequisite and core requirements,
  2. completed 30 credit hours toward his or her major,
  3. earned a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher.

The student who has met these conditions then selects one of the specialty sequences below and proceeds to complete the four courses of that selected specialty.
