The Bachelor of Arts in Information Sciences and Technology (ISTBA) is the newest degree offered in the College of IST. It provides avenues of study to those who are inherently independent and creative. If your goal after graduation is to be an entrepreneur, to go on to law school or to acquire an advanced degree in another field, this degree may be suitable for you.
The B.A. in IST is highly interdisciplinary and the B.A. candidate will be equipped with the expertise and skill set to navigate through the increasingly complex technology landscape. It is not designed to accommodate students who have failed entrance-to-major requirements in another major. It is also not designed to provide a major for students who have accumulated many credits as a result of changing majors several times, and have credits in unrelated disciplines, etc. If you have completed more than 60 credits of coursework, you are not eligible.
With the ISTBA program, you will design your own course plan with the help of faculty in IST and from other disciplines that you plan to integrate into your ISTBA degree.
