What is Information Technology?

The program in Information Technology (IT) is a bachelor's completion degree that allows you to create and build a unique IT pathway based on your ultimate career goals and/or plans for graduates studies-your own "Custom fIT" (CIT) degree program.

You will learn the fundamentals of IT during the first two years, then develop your specialization in the last two years of the program through a set of courses and electives, a faculty-guided research or individual project, and a year-long capstone designed by you with the help of your instructors.

What are the features of Miami’s program?


After you complete the first two years of the bachelor's degree (or already have a related associate's degree), we've built in the opportunity to dig deeper into some aspect of IT that interest you. If you are already working in the field, this gives you the opportunity to learn more about topics of value to you and your employer.

Faculty who have worked in IT fields

Many of the CIT faculty have worked in IT or related fields. We bring hands-on experience to the classroom and try to share relevant experiences with you to help you navigate the professional world.
