Shorten your path to your master's degree.
Students who qualify may take up to 9 graduate credits, which apply to both the bachelor's degree in Applied Information Technology and the M.S. in Interaction Design and Information Architecture. Contact us for more information or learn more about our accelerated options.

In this Bachelor of Science program for transfer students only, you'll explore networking, developing desktop and server-based applications and building and supporting websites—learning cutting-edge IT technologies at a much deeper level than that of traditional IT certification training.

While earning an IT certification is not a requirement of this program, we encourage you to do so in conjunction with your degree, and you should be able to complete at least one major IT certification by the time you graduate from the program.

About a third of your time in the Applied Information Technology program will be devoted to hands-on activities such as:

  • building and troubleshooting computers
  • constructing wired and wireless computer networks
  • writing and publishing desktop and server-based applications
  • installing and configuring secure Web servers
  • creating interactive websites.
