The skills taught in UALR’s information technology (IT) programs reflect what is expected by employers. These expectations are reflected in the research conducted with companies in central Arkansas prior to the design of the curriculum. The IT Minor benefits students in majors that lack an intensive computing component and the IT Certificate is for working professionals. Applicants do not need to have an extensive background in computers or technology, but they should demonstrate
- Problem-solving skills
- Leadership ability
- Oral and written communication skills
- Interest in information technology
- Basic computer skills which include file management and saving/moving documents and files
