Earn Your A.S. in Information Technology at Peirce College

If you're thinking about pursuing an IT degree, then you already know that technology is constantly evolving, which means employer demands are also in a permanent state of flux. That means you need to maintain up-to-the-moment skills and an ongoing passion for IT to differentiate yourself and head down the best possible career path. To do that, you also need a degree – one with a comprehensive program that will round out any skills and knowledge you already possess with advanced ones that are directly applicable to high-demand information technology jobs.

Information technology jobs will grow nearly 18% by 2022, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. To meet this opportunity, Peirce College offers comprehensive Information Technology and Technology Management degree programs that focus on practical, hands-on skills. As an Information Technology student, you’ll study hardware, software, networking as well as the business "soft/power skills," like communication and teamwork, that employers look for in anyone they hire.

And because the world of IT is vast and varied, Peirce gives you two different concentration options (Networking, Administration and Information Security or Programming and Application Development) so you can specialize in the area you're most passionate about.
