This minor is designed to allow students, regardless of discipline, to understand core computer concepts and decision support tools that complement their understanding of their own major field to apply computer-related decision concepts to that field.
This program does not require a detailed knowledge of the internal workings of the computer, nor is extensive computer programming required. Students in the sciences or liberal arts also are encouraged to pursue this minor. However, some additional background may be required.
Basic information technology and computer literacy skills are assumed as part of this program foundation. Should a student feel that these might not be a part of her background, they can be achieved in a variety of settings here at Stonehill or other locations. Students should contact their academic advisor or the program director for assistance in assessing individual background needs.
