Bachelor Degree Graduation Requirements:

Students must complete 120 Credit Hours (CHs) in their selected programs, including 39 CHs of General Education courses, 60 CHs of core program courses, 21 CHs in concentration courses, and 9 CHs of elective courses. Some courses satisfy both General Education and Program Requirements.
As part of the above core program requirements, students will crown their accomplishments in their programs with a Senior Project and a practical semester-long Internship.

Senior Project

Students complete a substantial "real-world" project developed under the direction of a faculty supervisor. The project builds on the courses the student completes in their program and prepares them for their future roles in the industry. The execution of each project normally encompasses the following phases: requirements analysis, design, implementation, documentation, and release of a tangible product, service, or technical report. For a sample of our students’ projects, please check our college’s online senior projects repository.

Internship

Internship for academic credit add a significant workplace experience to a student‘s education. Students earn three hours of academic credit for their internships during the final year. They gain valuable on-the-job work experience related to a chosen focus in IT and IS applications. In addition, internships permit students to interact with professionals in the fields of work in which they may one day have careers.
