What will the Internet be like 20 years from now? What company will be the next Google or Apple? What is the effect of technology on ethics, economics, and globalization? The information technology program at Nazareth College asks questions such as these, while giving students practical preparation for a career in IT.
Information technology is not simply about computers or programming. It is the use of technology to solve problems. A career in IT requires innovative thinking, communication skills, teamwork, and an interest in how people and technology interact.
At Nazareth, IT students develop an entrepreneurial perspective and the ability to evaluate information and technology issues from the business perspective. Integrating the discipline’s multiple aspects of networking, coding, database design, and internet technologies, the program teaches students to analyze and solve problems to help people and industry achieve their goals.
