About

Information technology integrates information flow by function, such as for production, marketing or personnel departments. Inquiry and report generation and use of databases is a byproduct of many computer information systems. As a computer information technology associate's degree candidate, you'll learn all this and more. You'll also gain an understanding of organizations and their processes, as well as human relations and communication skills.

See Yourself Succeed in Information Technology

Students in this program are educated as generalists in areas of business and information technology. You'll emerge prepared to develop applications programs, be involved in defining and planning information systems, implement information systems applications, and manage and develop information systems. You'll also be qualified to hold positions in functional areas of organizations and in general management.

Internships & Outcomes

The CIT industry reports a need for employees who have both IT and general business skills, and the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that employment in computer systems design and related services are projected to grow rapidly over the next decade, outpacing similar professional, scientific, and technical industries and the economy as a whole. More specifically, between 2010 and 2020, computer systems design and related services are expected to grow at an average annual rate of 6.1 percent, compared with 2.9 percent for all industries.

Graduates with an Southern New Hampshire University Computer Information Technology major are well positioned to excel in key roles in this growing field. Classes provide a solid foundation in both business and information technology, allowing students to bridge the gap between the two. Past and current SNHU students work for companies such as Fidelity Investments and SCD Solutions.
