The Information Technology Program (ITP) embodies the idea “Technology for All through X+Tech,” allowing students to couple any major (X) with technology (Tech). Students explore how practical technology education can be used to enhance their knowledge in other fields. ITP offers 15 minors and specializations in Applied Analytics, Applied Computer Security, Blockchain, Cloud Computing with DevOps, Computer and Digital Forensics, Computer Programming, Connected Devices and Making, Education and Computing Minor  (with Rossier School of Education), Enterprise Information Systems, Innovation: The Digital Entrepreneur, Mobile App Development, Technical Game Art, Video Game Design and Management, Video Game Programming, and Web Technologies and Applications.

ITP courses are open to all USC students.

Minors

ITP minors are open to undergraduate students in all majors.

To apply for a minor, students should meet the regular admissions standards and have a declared USC major. For specific information on admission and application procedures, see itp.usc.edu. Students should consult ITP’s advisers about course sequencing, departmental clearance, and course substitutions.

Please see the catalogue page for each minor for program descriptions and requirements.

Specializations

ITP specializations are open to students in all majors. Specializations are an alternative for students interested in gaining experience who do not have space to complete a full minor program. Specializations do not appear on transcripts, but students are eligible to receive certificates from ITP upon completion of required course work to document their successful completion of the specialization.

For specific information on admission and application procedures, see itp.usc.edu. Students should consult ITP’s advisers about course sequencing, departmental clearance, and course substitutions.

Please see itp.usc.edu/academics for program requirements.
