The School of Information Technology offers a variety of programs: graduate, accelerated graduate combinations, undergraduate, minor and certificates. We strive to maintain a innovative, welcoming and supportive community with many great opportunities thanks to our dedicated faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends.

The Bachelor's of Science in Information Technology is our most popular program. For the program, students have the option of one of three tracks: Network Infrastructure, Cybersecurity or Software Development. Beyond the specialized focus of the chosen track, our program offers a broad foundation in the areas like database management (design and administration) and digital media, and foundations in all tracks in addition to software application development (Web, mobile, enterprise and desktop), networking and systems administration (including technologies for data centers and storage), and cybersecurity (including forensics, monitoring and penetration testing). All students' experiences are culminated by the senior design experience - a two-semester in-depth project that develops a real-life IT solution. Students present these senior projects to the community in an IT Expo at the end of the spring semester of every year.

Our Master of Science in Information Technology program also has four slightly different specialized tracks: Cybersecurity, Mobile/Social Applications Development, IT Infrastructure and Game Development. This program prepares students for higher-level research, projects and performance. This masters program is also part of our IT Accelerated Programs. In addition to the higher-level instruction, we create a collaborative community for all accelerated students. Other IT Accelerated Programs include BSIT plus a Master of Science in Information Technology, or a Master of Business Administration, or a Master of Instructional Design Technology or a Master of Health Informatics.

A minor in IT is available, and we also have 6 certificates: Mobile Application Development, Foundations in Cybersecurity, Database Management, Networking, Software Development, and Webmaster.
