Support From Professors

"Personally, I believe the best part of the information technology and data science program is the support from the professors. I knew that if I ever had questions about courses or opportunities in the area, I could reach out to the staff to receive guidance. Especially Dr. Carr, as the faculty mentor for the game studies emphasis."
