Bachelor of Applied Science

The mission of the Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) in Information Technology Management is to provide students with the opportunity to attain a degree that will enhance their placement to management and supervisory positions within the information technology field. This program is designed to layer on top of any A.S. degree in a computer-related field or an Associate in Arts degree and will broaden students’ knowledge in information technology management in order to facilitate their personal enrichment. The curriculum emphasizes a practical hands-on application approach to understanding information technology management.

All upper-division applicants to the B.A.S. program are required to declare B.A.S. as their major. Students must have earned an Associate in Science degree, an Associate in Arts degree, or the equivalent from an accredited higher institution. The B.A.S. in Information Technology Management is a limited access program.
