Introduction

The Internet Studies Center (ISC) provides a number of courses leading to a minor in Internet Resource Creation and Managements. With the Internet Resource Creation and Management minor students from any field of study can learn or advance their skills in web development and their understanding of the internet.

Why Consider an Internet Resource and Creation Management Minor?

The Internet Resource and Creation Management Minor is designed to help students become creative problems solvers that are fluent in current web technologies, and familiar with the historic development and evolving societal implications of the internet and world wide web. The minor also includes required coursework from the Communications and English or Journalism departments to help students develop their technical writing abilities. The minor will complement courses taken in a regular degree program.

Participation in a professional internship will provide an opportunity to enhance project management, web development and team communication skills. With the minor from the Internet Studies Center and a four-year degree, students will have knowledge needed to contribute and adapt to today’s rapidly changing technical environment.
