Bellevue College expands Bachelor’s degree options: Information Systems and Technology (IST)
Bellevue College’s new bachelor of applied science degree program in Information Systems and Technology (IST) meets the explicit need employers have identified for systems administrators, security analysts, data specialists and application developers through providing a pathway to the baccalaureate for students with two-year technical associate degrees in IT. The decision to offer this particular degree was based in part on findings by the Bureau of Labor Statistics that a bachelor’s degree is now considered the minimum level of education for a variety of IT occupations. As a result, more students, along with existing IT professionals, will need to continue their education at the bachelor’s level. Check out the press release!
Graduates of the BAS in IST will have a broad base of theoretical and technical knowledge, as well as specialized knowledge in one of four concentration areas:
- Systems administration
- Information security
- Application development or
- Business Intelligence
