Bachelor of Applied Science in Information Technology
The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT) degree has the primary objective of meeting the high demand for professional degrees in the strategy, development, and administration of integrated computing, management, and information technology systems. This offering is targeted at the metro Atlanta region, and will serve those students interested in combining computer science, management, and information technology curricula. The WebBSIT program is designed for people seeking a Bachelor's degree in Information Technology, but whose lifestyles make it difficult to attend traditional classes on campus. This program is in collaboration with other University System institutions. The Bachelor of Applied Science in Information Technology (BASIT) degree is designed to serve students who hold an associate degree in information technology from a community college or a Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) institution, but lack the general education and upper level IT coursework required for a Bachelor of Science degree to continue their education in Southern Polytechnic State University.
Information Technology (IT) is the term used to describe the convergence of Computer Science, Management, and Information Systems. IT emphasizes the integration and performance of information technology planning, development, implementation, and operation, and development of the infrastructure to support the processes necessary to achieve organizational objectives.
