The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (IT) curriculum provides students with a broad foundation of technical skills and understanding.
The program curriculum is highly flexible which allows students to personalize their curriculum to obtain the necessary skills and knowledge needed for their desired career path. The core curriculum covered in the Information Technology degree program includes theoretical and applied concepts, including computer programming, networking, cybersecurity, web design, data management and analysis and more.
In addition to the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology program, students may also elect to pursue a Concentration in Business with this program as well. The Concentration in Business, offered in collaboration with the Hull College of Business, provides students with a deeper understanding of core business concepts, functions and processes, including economics, accounting, management and marketing. This concentration is ideal for students seeking to create technology-enabled solutions to critical business challenges.
The IT curriculum's flexibility allows students to obtain the necessary skills requested by information technology employers. These are a few of the job opportunities available for students who graduate from the Information Technology program:
"When I first enrolled at Augusta University in 2016, I knew I wanted to do something with computers because I had a love for tech. I started out as a Computer Science major, but after noticing the growth of cybersecurity on a national level, I changed my major to Information Technology with a concentration in Cybersecurity and I ended up loving it! My I.T. degree has opened up a lot of job opportunities for me, and the concepts I've learned with the Cybersecurity concentration* have helped me understand the finer details of how certain systems work in my current job. I've been told I'm grasping concepts faster than some seasoned employees and I credit that to the foundation that was set for me at Augusta University."- Daniel Holland Technical Analyst, Fathom Technology Partners Class of 2020 alumni
*The cybersecurity concentration is no longer available for the I.T. program and is now a fully developed degree program, our B.S. in Cybersecurity program. If students pursue an I.T. degree and have an interest in cybersecurity as well, students have the option of adding on a cyber defender or advanced cyber defender certificate.
