Major: Computer Science (This Major's Salary over time)
The IT program here is almost non-existent. The curriculum is the same for IT as it is for CS except for about 4 classes. I've had 23 professors here, 5 of them spoke English well enough that I didn't have a problem understanding them. Two were in the math department (which also sucks here btw). One was in film, and the other two in communications. The administration and counseling at this university is also terrible. They are unhelpful and not willing to work with the students. They do not offer all of the high level classes that they require year round and will drop the class if it has "low enrollment" effectively preventing students from graduating. The curriculum is out of date. The computer security class had us working on exclusively Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.10 machines (the year is 2012). There is no high level networking class at all. I seemed to know more about networking than the instructors. I really wish I went to another school. This place was a waste of time and money.
