Customize Your Program with a Joint Certificate

The IST program notably allows students to customize their degree program by developing a focused area of study or by choosing a minor or certificate in another field. This flexibility enhances the IST degree and allows for specialized preparation and experience that prepares graduates for the varying career options available in the information professions. Students wishing to pursue a certificate or minor in another field are encouraged to make this decision early in their program, and speak to their academic advisor to plan their course of study.
