The College of Information and Mathematical Sciences (CIMS) was formed in 2002-2003 by renaming and restructuring the former New College for Economic and Community Development. CIMS is composed of the Department of Information Technology, formerly part of the New College, and the Department of Mathematics, formerly part of the School of Arts and Sciences.
A primary objective of the College of Information and Mathematical Sciences is offering the Information Technology Program, a laddered program that prepares graduates to enter the burgeoning Information Technology field at three levels:
In addition, the College of Information and Mathematical Sciences has two other primary objectives:
All instruction in the College of Information and Mathematical Sciences addresses one or more outcomes and uses a variety of assessments to determine a student’s progress in developing the knowledge and abilities necessary to demonstrate that he or she has achieved the outcomes.

The Department of Information Technology administers Clayton State University’s Information Technology Career Ladder (ITCL). The academic programs in this “ladder” are as follows:
The objective of the Information Technology Career Ladder is to prepare graduates to enter the rapidly expanding Information Technology job market. Based on experience and personal expectations, students can comfortably enter employment after completing the certificate, associate, or baccalaureate levels.
Courses in Information Technology are taught by Clayton State University full-time faculty and by a cadre of expert practitioners who serve as part-time faculty.
The Information Technology Career Ladder is structured such that all requirements of the C.I.T. are included in the A.A.S.I.T., and in turn, all requirements of the A.A.S.I.T. are included in the B.I.T. All students enter at the C.I.T.
All normal Clayton State University admission, progression, and graduation requirements for certificate, associate degree, and baccalaureate degree apply to the Information Technology Department. Because of the unique laddered nature of the ITCL program, there are some special policies that apply to IT and some general University policies that are especially relevant for IT students as explained below. For further information and appropriate paperwork when necessary, contact the Department of Information Technology 770-961-3636, TEC-105.
LEARNING OUTCOMES FOR THE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY CAREER LADDER
Remember that change is the only constant in the Information Technology industry. The IT curriculum is designed to keep pace with that change.
The following Learning Outcomes (standards and goals) guide the ongoing development of the IT curriculum:
At the C.I.T. level, students are expected to obtain a developing level of mastery and to demonstrate an emerging level of knowledge and skills in the IT field. Students should show potential to perform independently. Students should be aware of the skills required for success in the IT field and should have refined job search skills.
At the A.A.S.I.T. level, students are expected to obtain a mature level of mastery and to demonstrate a refined level of comprehension. Students should be able to apply appropriate IT skills and perform both independently and as a team member. Students should exhibit communication, reasoning, critical thinking and problem solving skills.
At the B.I.T. level, students are expected to obtain a proficient level of mastery and to demonstrate a superior level of knowledge and understanding. Students should be able to integrate and apply IT skills across multiple areas, both independently and as a team member.
All requirements of the C.I.T. are included in the A.A.S.I.T., and in turn, all requirements of the A.A.S.I.T. are included in the B.I.T.

The Department of Mathematics offers instruction in mathematics, computer science, and computing and is responsible for the following programs and courses:
The transfer programs administered by the Department of Mathematics are detailed below in the section on Core Curriculum for Transfer Programs.
NOTE: Mathematics-specific software is required in almost all mathematics courses.
Clayton State University offers the first sixty credit hours of study (freshman and sophomore years) in Computer Science and Mathematics, majors for which Clayton State University does not currently offer baccalaureate degrees. In these fields, the program of study approved by the University System of Georgia guarantees that students who complete Areas A-F of the core curriculum in a given major at Clayton State University will be able to apply all courses to that major at any other state university in Georgia.
Students who complete Areas A-F in Computer Science or Mathematics and who fulfill all graduation requirements specified in this catalog will be awarded an Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree provided the students applies for graduation with the degree.
It is important to be aware that an A.A. or A.S. with a major (program of study) in a given field does not prepare the graduate for employment in that field. A.A. and A.S. degrees are intended only to prepare students to complete the baccalaureate degree in the field.
Students who complete the core curriculum (or Areas thereof) at Clayton State University are guaranteed that all courses will apply toward graduation in the same major at any other institution of the University System of Georgia. Students who have difficulty with transfer acceptance of core courses within the System should contact the Transfer Ombudsperson in ADM-28, 770-961-3538.
Students who plan to complete their baccalaureate degrees outside the University System of Georgia should consult the academic catalogs of the institutions they plan to attend in order to determine which courses to take at Clayton State University during their freshman and sophomore years.
The courses in the General Education Core Curriculum that apply to both Computer Science and Mathematics (Areas A-E) are listed first (prerequisites and corequisites are found in the course description chapter of this catalog). The Area F requirements for Computer Science and Mathematics follow Area E.
