Minor in Information Technology, Design, and Startups

Do you have a dream of starting a new company? The minor in Information Technology, Design, and Startups (IDS) is a great way of converting that dream into reality. In IDS courses, you’ll acquire the basic knowledge and skills required to run a successful business.

You’ll also learn how to develop and refine new ideas—the seeds of innovation—and turn those ideas into a viable venture. You can earn credit through real-world entrepreneurial immersion experiences, allowing you to pursue your venture while earning your bachelor’s degree.

The IDS minor also provides a supportive environment of talented faculty members who approach entrepreneurship from a multidisciplinary perspective as well as a team of community partners and mentors who can help you make the right connections to jumpstart your venture.
