Assists sophomore and transfer students with choice of concentration, course selection, and career readiness. Course Objectives The three primary goals of the course are to guide students to make informed decisions when choosing a specific concentration (while discussing the content of the various concentration courses), provide information on career paths that are available within each concentration area, and to inform students of the options they have available for completing minors, second majors as well as graduate studies. Other important issues such as capstone courses and certifications are also discussed. Rationale Each student pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology degree must choose an area of focus by declaring a concentration among one of several fields of study. It is important that these students be guided to choose an area in information technology that best matches their skill set and interests. It is also essential that these students are well informed of the career paths that are available to them upon graduation as well as options to pursue alternative studies including higher level degrees.
