Information Technology ( IT) is used in almost every area of higher education. However, it can be clearly seen that number of courses intended to teach the use of IT in social science is quite low in Turkey. There is a gap between generations who design curriculum and who take classes at universities. If we consider digital natives will attend universities soon, it is very important to redesign the curriculums including topics about IT. Besides the number of IT courses in science curriculum is more than the number of IT courses in social science curriculum.
