Trevecca Nazarene University

New Bachelor of Science IT degree-completion program

Trevecca Nazarene University MHR will offer a new Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT) as a degree-completion program beginning in September 2009. 

 

The marketplace for IT professionals in the Nashville area continues to be strong despite recent economic woes. The Nashville Technology Council continues to encourage academic institutions to find new ways to provide for this need. In an effort to help meet this need Trevecca has developed a new Degree Completion program in Information Technology. Many workers seek new careers or desire to improve their financial situation by moving into new disciplines. It is expected that the new program will provide a great opportunity for those seeking to get a step ahead in the current employment market.

 

The BSIT program will require the completion of 16 IT courses (48 credits) at Trevecca. It is believed to be the first of its kind for IT in Tennessee. The program uses a cohort-based blended learning experience where students will meet once a week and complete the program in 17 months. Physical presence on campus is only required a few times a month.

 

Students will be exposed to the latest business technologies including those from Oracle, Sun, Adobe, Microsoft, and IBM. All of the major IT domains are covered in the program including programming, database development and administration, web design and development, hardware and networking, information management, and systems integration.

 

In addition, students will have the opportunity to work on real-world projects through a capstone experience.
