    Are you the IT person for your family and friends, always helping someone with a tech trouble? If so, consider majoring in information technology helping to improve the communications needs of a business. Since it’s such a broad major, many students find themselves specializing in one area of interest. That may include database development, web page design, security analysis, or research to create new approaches to solve computing problems. You will also work on a senior thesis, possibly creating an app or website or analyzing how people use an existing technology.

    Courses include computer science, C++ programming, web technologies, networking, and courses in ethics and law pertaining to information technology. You will also take a fair share of business and communication classes. A typical job would be as an IT person helping to troubleshoot technical problems to keep the business humming.

    Related jobs include network administrator, information systems managers and computer programmers.
