Information Technology (B.S.)
Located as we are in the middle of one of the most dynamic and rapidly growing technology communities in the United States, the School of Business and Technology offers a comprehensive and robust range of programs to help our students develop the skills and insights to be leaders in technology fields and be ready for the jobs of today and tomorrow.
Marymount's information technology (IT) program offers a solid foundation of knowledge across the system life cycle — defining requirements, developing software, administering and securing a computer network, and successfully managing IT projects. The curriculum addresses hardware, software, databases, networks, security, quality assurance, and project management.
Students are also prepared for industrywide certification, such as Net+ from CompTia, and Certified Software Tester (CSTE) from the QA Global Institute. Students who specialize in forensic computing study the field using topics required for the International Society of Forensic Computer Examiner’s Certified Computer Examiner certification. Students who specialize in networking and cybersecurity are prepared for the Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) and the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certifications for Cisco Systems and the Security+ certification from CompTia.
Marymount's information technology undergraduate and graduate programs are coordinated through The Cyber Center in the Ballston Center, fourth floor. A Canvas site provides information on the various programs, events, resources, jobs, and internships.
Marymount undergraduates who wish to accelerate their progress toward completion of a master's degree (Business Administration, Cybersecurity, or Information Technology) can apply for the pre-M.S./pre-MBA option. Students accepted into these competitive programs begin their studies toward their master's degree while completing their bachelor’s degree. Students accepted into these programs can supplement their undergraduate graduation requirements with up to 12 credits of specified graduate coursework during their senior year.
Highly qualified female students may be eligible for the Clare Boothe Luce Scholarship for Women in Science and Mathematics, providing full tuition and room and board.
