Technology Competency Skills

Saint Leo University Technology Competency Skills                                             

Technology is threaded through our personal, professional, and educational interactions. To successfully manage these interactions - specifically relating to education and employment - our students must have the ability to navigate and operate essential computer functions, beyond social media. Demonstrating competency of basic technology skills is essential for the success of all Saint Leo University students.

Saint Leo University requires undergraduate students to demonstrate technology competency prior to degree conferral. These technology competency skills can be satisfied through a waiver exam, microcredential module, or academic course (COM-140 or equivalent, earning a grade of C or better within 10 years). Students should meet with their advisors to discuss options and establish a plan to satisfy the graduation requirement.

Minor Requirements (20-35 credit hours)

Students enrolled in the education minor will take a 35-hour math core and 20-35 hours of education courses including the following:  

Total Credits: 120
