This paper presents a proposed design for a new undergraduate major in services science within a bachelor of science in information technology program. Potential students in the major will be Emerati nationals with strong verbal skills but sometimes weak writing, math and problem solving skills. Math and problem solving skill are essential in the new services dominated environment, so it is important that these skills be developed in students if the nation is to continue to lead the region in IT service provisioning. The curriculum proposes three new courses and inclusion of four existing course from related majors.
