Current Degree (Fall 2012 and later)

The BSIT program gives the student the opportunity to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology. The course work will provide a foundation in mathematics, programming, networking, databases, web, computer architecture and information systems. The BSIT covers the interdisciplinary ground between a BS in Computer Science and a BS in Management Information Systems, emphasizing the fastest growing segments of the both: Web Systems, Databases, and Networks. This interdisciplinary program draws from both camps: mathematics, science, and computer programming from Computer Science, and business organization and project management from Management Information Systems. From there it adds depth in Web Programming and Technology, Database Theory and Design, and Data Communications and Networking, while allowing for further depth in these or related areas such as e-Commerce, Computer Security, and Multimedia.

Catalog Rights

Undergraduate students remaining in attendance in regular sessions at a California State University campus, a California community college, or any combination of these institutions, may for the purposes of meeting all graduation requirements elect to meet the requirements in effect at CI either:

  1. at the time the student began attendance, or
  2. at the time of entrance to CI, or
  3. at the time of graduation from CI.

If while enrolled the student declares or changes the major, a major option, or a minor, the student shall follow the requirements either in effect at the time of the declaration or change, or in effect at the time of graduation. Other catalog years may be approved by department petition. Students do not lose catalog rights for GE and other graduation requirements by declaring or changing their major, if they maintain continuous attendance. (SP08-07)
