Mission

The primary aim of our BS program in Information Technology (IT) is to prepare students for successful careers as I.T. professionals in order to make a positive contribution to society. This aim enhances the lives of our graduates and serves the needs of our constituents. We do so in full cognizance of Georgia Southern University’s aims to develop “students who value honesty, civility and the dignity of work” (Excerpt from Georgia Southern’s mission statement). At the same time, we hope to give the students an enjoyable learning experience, enhanced by innovative pedagogical approaches.
