Information Science and Technology degree: Modules & How they may be satisfied

 

National Science Foundation
Foundations of the Future
Vermont State Colleges and Technical Centers

 

Each of the following learning outcomes can be met either with the NSF module, by completion of a course listed to the right at any of the cooperating institutions, or incorporating an industry certification. The outcome may also be met by courses transferred from other institutions. It should be noted that the listed outcome is not the same as taking the course listed in the row. Rather, the course has as a component the desired learning outcome. For instance, the Logic outcome, may be met with the one credit NSF module or by the three credit Philosophy course which has additional substance beyond the learning outcome.

Table updated: 9/10/2004

The degree program is composed of two requirements:

1. The outcomes for the selected major-area and iChoice need to be met

2. The total number of credits must be at least 74 credits in the major.

 

A module development guideline is applied to all developed modules.
