The School of Information Studies offers an 18-credit minor program in Information Management and Technology (IM&T). Students with any non-iSchool major in any college within Syracuse University can pursue this minor.
The IM&T minor gives students knowledge of information technology and an understanding of information and communication challenges. This minor complements many majors because all organizations need people who understand information resources and information technology.
WHY SHOULD YOU MINOR IN IM&T?
Students who minor in information management and technology increase their employability in a variety of careers:
Science and research majors who want to work in a research lab will be more employable if they can use online information systems to retrieve information and manage data, such as genome sequences.
Retailing and business students will be better prepared to work in business if they have skills in microcomputer applications and office systems technology.
Communications students must be able to research information, present and package it effectively in video, audio, and print form. An information technology minor will provide those skills.
