Computer Information Technology, B.S.


A major in computer information technology requires between 51 and 54 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 four tracks available: network and system administration, web and database administration, cybersecurity, and non-specialist. 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.

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.
