Think of your favorite app or website. Imagine if you could create something like that for others to use and enjoy. Programming allows you to tap into your analytical and creative sides to create programs, apps, and websites. This concentration allows you to combine the technical skills of Information Technology with some of the design and user-experience elements of programming.

Your Programming courses will build upon your Information Technology classes, taking what you learn in these classes and showcasing how these principles apply in software, website, and application development. In addition to these courses, you’ll also have the opportunity for independent study, where you’ll work one-on-one with a professor on a topic of your choosing.
Those in our programming concentration are also highly encouraged to take advantage of internships and co-ops. These experiences are often paid, and many have led to job offers for our students. Plus, the real world, hands-on experience you receive through these experiences is invaluable! You’ll want to start talking to the Career Center early on in your studies to help you find the perfect experience (or experiences!).
Students who study Programming can go into a variety of software development roles for businesses, government organizations, and nonprofits, including web development, computer programming, software engineering, application development, and more.
