The Master of Science in Information Technology with a concentration in Applied Information Technology is an innovative graduate degree focused on the management and implementation of information technology to support today’s business, industry or government work environments. Students will learn how communications, management, legal considerations and other desirable workplace skills are integrated with information technology to facilitate successful application of technology in any organization.
The 33-credit, 11 course Applied IT program is a nationally
certified Professional Science Master's (PSM) developed with the Science-Plus curricula which provides cutting-edge, career-based skills. During the program, students
will complete seven courses in IT skills, modeled after the ACM and IEEE IT
industry standards, three courses in highly sought after professional skills
like communications, cyberlaw and IT project management, and an industry
internship providing connections to potential employers.
Designed with convenience and flexibility in mind, students will complete all coursework online. The cohort-based program will allow students to network and build
relationships with other professionals in the field, while learning from accomplished faculty.
"The Professional Science Master’s readies
students for today’s
workplace," explains Dr. Katherine Herbert, professor in Montclair State’s
Department of Computer Science and the program’s coordinator. "It gives
students the unique
opportunity to develop industry soft skills such as team building and leadership
while strengthening their technical know-how.
The program is capped with a real world industry
experience and the
whole curriculum is designed to help aid students in pursing IT
opportunities including IT project management."
