About the Program
The Information Technology degree program is designed to provide students with the technical skills required for entry-level employment and the course work necessary to transfer to a four-year institution. Students may select the programming, database, or Web Technology option. Students may also customize their technology electives to best suit their work or transfer needs. Most of the courses can be taken online as well as in the classroom.
Students who choose this curriculum and desire to transfer courses to a four-year institution should talk with the program coordinator and/or an academic advisor. Since four-year institutions vary in their requirements, it is strongly recommended that students also contact the appropriate department at the intended transfer institution. Program electives can then be selected to meet the requirements of the specific transfer institution.
Transfer agreements are in place with Towson University, The Johns Hopkins University, Villa Julie College, University of Baltimore, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and the University of Maryland, University College.
