The central organizing concept of this major is information — its structures in verbal, visual, mediated, and quantitative forms; its storage, analysis, evaluation, processing and communication by both machines and people. The program depends on current technologies and continues to evolve as technologies change. Students can expect curricular additions and should consult with their advisor early and often to be aware of pending changes. The curriculum ranges widely across several disciplines, all of which are represented in the core requirements. They include computing, linguistics, cognitive psychology, communication theory, organizational communication and management, mathematics, data and information technologies, and language. Computing represents an important dimension of this major, but students also are expected to be thoroughly grounded in human language, human information processing, and communication. This helps ensure against narrow technical preparation, which too often leads to rapid obsolescence in rapidly changing fields, and it prepares students to make the most creative and useful applications of various information technologies. A goal of the program is to train students to conceptualize and solve information problems in interdisciplinary situations. A core introductory course focuses on information problems; most of the courses require projects, and many demand group work. A research project or internship is also required of all majors. Moreover, each student negotiates an individual area of emphasis. This requirement is an opportunity to apply information principles to a particular problem area or to gain further tools for a specific career direction. Students also develop a personal portfolio that documents many of their... [-]

Bachelors in IT in North America 2017. OVERVIEW As countries around the world become more technologically advanced, they also become a target for hackers. Companies large and small, and governments in just about every nation on earth now face a daily battle fending off cyber-attacks. Yet, many lack the resources to do so. According to Cisco’s 2017 Security Capabilities Benchmark Study: Organizations can investigate only 56% of security alerts on any given day Nearly a quarter of the organizations that have suffered an attack lost business opportunities Forty-five percent of the outages lasted from 1 to 8 hours; 15 percent lasted 9 to 16 hours, and 11 percent lasted 17 to 24 hours While this is bad news for them, it could be good news for you. That is, if you’re considering a career in Cyber and Network Security. Clearly, there is a need for more security professionals. In the U.S. alone, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment of information security analysts is projected to grow 18 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.
