Leading to the Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree, the curriculum will comprehensively educate and develop your skills in information technology and in a cognate discipline of your choosing in either accounting, business administration, or economics. You'll also have the opportunity to pursue a wide variety of interests and ideas through our general education requirements.
