ISTBS

B.S. Degree in Information Sciences and Technology (ISTBS)

The Bachelor of Science in Information Sciences and Technology (ISTBS) program is where information, people, and technology meet. This degree prepares students for careers related to how people create, modify, and use information technologies--and with what effect these technologies have on themselves, other individuals, organizations, and society.

This degree program covers a broad range of topics from software development to social media to business applications for technology. The major seeks to provide students with skills needed to hit the ground running in the working world. You will learn how to use technology to solve real-life problems, how to interact with a variety of people, and how to keep your skill set sharp as technology continues to evolve.


Here's what students say about the ISTBS program:

“I could foresee the importance of technology in the future of society, and I discovered that the ISTBS major implemented technology in order to solve business problems. I knew ultimately that I would fit in well with this program and that it would prepare me well for the future.” — Jessica Newlen, Class of 2011

"I chose the ISTBS degree because I always had an interest in technology. In high school I loved working with Photoshop and PowerPoint, and I really enjoyed bringing art and technology together. My experience in the college has been great. All my classes are relevant to the real world and the group work experience has prepared me for working in teams both in and outside the classroom." Cristina Pabon, Class of 2010
