Requirements of the IT-Major

Please see this flowchart of the 21 courses (=64 credit hours) required in the IT major; the flowchart provides a suggested order of courses to take over a period of four semesters. In general, it is recommended that students take the lower-level courses (100-, 200-level) before moving on to the upper-level courses (300-, 400-level).


  • All core and required courses that are taught by ISOM-faculty are now listed as MIS (e.g., CIT 480 has become MIS 480 etc.), course numbering and prerequisites have remained the same. 
  • MIS 320 (formerly CIT 320) is the new prerequisite to MIS 324. This changes the suggested order of courses slightly, which is included in the new flowchart.
  • MIS 480 (formerly CIT 480) has been approved as a writing-intensive course, starting Spring 2017.
The courses required in the IT-major fulfill UNCW's University Requirements as folllows:
