Our department provides students with the unique opportunity to build their degree around their past learning experiences and future professional goals. We highly encourage current and future students to speak with an advisor or faculty member about which degree is the best fit.

It is important to choose the degree that will best prepare you for your specific career goals.  The ICS faculty are available for advising assistance.
