Overview

The Information Technology program at Southeastern Louisiana University prepares students with practical, hands-on expertise to solve everyday computing problems. The new program's curriculum includes theoretical computer science topics and mathematics for graduates to successfully converse with other computing professionals while focusing more on the applications of computer science.

High achieving students can apply for the ACE program (Accelerated Computing Engagement) program which is a pathway to earning the Bachelor's in Information Technology in three years and includes several perks including a direct opportunity to an internship experience.

The curriculum includes theoretical computer science topics and enough mathematics for graduates to successfully converse with other computing professionals. However, this concentration focuses much more on the the applications of computer science, and as such does not require as many higher mathematics courses as the other concentrations. 

As part of this applied focus, students in this concentration satisfy an application area component, a series of electives designed to enable a deeper study of one particular computing application. Careers in this concentration focus on developing, supporting, and administrating the computing technology that has become critical to all organizations.
