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, and so the needs of employers.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, information technology jobs are expected to grow by 11% through 2029, and the median salary for IT jobs is approximately $88,000.

Peirce College's IT programs, including our AS in Information Technology, can help you prepare for these opportunities - even before you finish your associates degree. 

At Peirce, you can embed employer-recognized certifications into your program, which will further validate that possess the skills employers are looking for, and better position you for employment. Many employers require one of these certifications for job candidates.

In addition, Peirce awards credit for a wide range of IT and cybersecurity certifications, so students who already possess these certifications will benefit from additional transfer credits that apply directly to the program - which saves time and money. 

Our programs  focus developing 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.

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.
