Information Technology B.S.

Marymount’s information technology (IT) program recognizes the role of technology in all aspects of today’s world — in business, in society, and in our personal lives.

The IT program provides the following:

  • A solid foundation of all of the parts of technology that are essential to understand how technology is used today and how it may be applied in the future. This includes defining requirements, developing software applications, building and administering complex computer infrastructure on the premises and in the cloud, and successfully managing IT projects.
  • Knowledge and experience in a specialized area of technology or its application leading to jobs in those fields. Students can either select a designated embedded minor in a particular area of technology or tailor the program to their needs by selecting five elective courses to further the current integration of business and technology. Students may select minors from the IT program, the business program, and the economics program in the School of Business; from the graphics and media design program or digital writing and narrative design program in the School of Design; or from the criminal justice or mathematics programs in the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences.

Marymount’s information technology undergraduate and graduate programs are coordinated through The Cyber Center in the Ballston Center, fourth floor. A Canvas site provides information on the various programs, events, resources, jobs, and internships.

Marymount undergraduates who wish to accelerate their progress toward completion of a master’s degree (Business Administration, Cybersecurity, or Information Technology) can apply for the pre-M.S./pre-MBA option. Students accepted into these competitive programs begin their studies toward their master’s degree while completing their bachelor’s degree. Students accepted into these programs can supplement their undergraduate graduation requirements with up to 12 credits of specified graduate coursework during their senior year.
