Information Technology (Minor)
Information Technology (Minor)
What is information technology?
The information technology minor is designed to complement non-technical majors to help you apply computer technologies toward satisfying the information needs of individuals and organizations in any field. The curriculum is rooted in fundamentals, and you will develop computer competency and an understanding of computer and information technology applications. You’ll learn programming and problem-solving skills, as well as abstract thinking. If you’re pursuing a major in afield such as architecture, business, marketing, education or pre-law, you’ll benefit from the technical knowledge provided by this minor.
Why study information technology at UNH?
You’ll have access to the UNH Inter Operability Lab, where you’ll test the networking equipment of top technology companies, gaining real-world training and experience. Many of UNH’s student organizations are a natural fit for IT students, such as the Cyber Security Club, the Linux Club, and Wildcat Women in Computer Science. Plus, the Programming Assistance Center offers walk-in support and tutoring.

Curriculum & Requirements
The information technology (IT) minor is a way for students in non-technical majors to bridge the gap between a primarily non-technical education and a technical world. Graduates from a variety of fields are discovering that there is a great need to have computer competency in addition to the knowledge they gain in their major; the IT minor, which is tailored to grow students' understanding of computer and information technology applications, helps prepare students for the future.
Students who minor in IT must complete a minimum of 20 credits of IT courses. All students must take IT 520 Computer Architecture as well as an approved introductory programming course. The other three courses may be chosen from the list below.
Credit toward the minor will only be given for courses passed with C- or better, and a 2.00 grade-point average must be maintained in courses for the minor. Courses taken on the pass/fail basis may not be used for the minor. Students should declare their intent to earn a minor as early as possible and no later than the end of the junior year. . During the final term, an application should be made to the dean (of the student's major college) to have the minor shown on their academic record. Students must consult with their major adviser and also the minor coordinator.
