The mission of the B.A. in Information Technology is to provide an educational program that is high quality, academically challenging and career-enriching by maintaining a balance between theoretical and experimental aspects of information technology, as well as a balance between software and hardware concepts. The degree further seeks to provide curricula that serve the citizens and industrial organizations in the United States and Texas in general and those in North Texas in particular.
The B. A. in Information Technology has been ABET-accredited since 2012 and educates students about developing computer software systems in an information technology environment, such as database, network or systems administration.
