Computer Information Technology, B.S.

A major in computer information technology requires between 50 and 56 credit hours of coursework, depending on whether a student places out of selected courses.

Students in computer information technology study a core of courses that include basic informatics topics and fundamentals of computer and network administration. Students are required to select a track. There are three tracks available: Network and System Administration, Cloud and System Administration, and Cybersecurity. The CIT classes are offered during daytime and in the evening, and in multiple formats (face-to-face, online, and hybrid). In addition to the traditional 16-week courses offered face-to-face during the daytime and in the evening, online, and hybrid, NKU offers several accelerated 7-week evening, online, and hybrid courses.  This allows you to customize your schedule in a format that works for you and your life.

All three tracks are available in traditional format. The Cloud and System Administration track is also available in online format.

Special graduation requirements: Students must earn a grade of C- or better in each course that counts as part of a major or minor for all programs offered by the department.
