The IT Fundamentals Certificate is a new 15 credit post-baccalaureate certificate which provides an introduction to the background and practice of information technology. This certificate can be completed 100% online.

The certificate is intended for students with non‐technical backgrounds who are interested in pursuing professions or graduate study in the field of information technology. Interested and qualified students may transfer from this certificate to the M.S. in Information Technology or the M.S. in Cyber Security programs.
