Let's talk about Rasmussen University's Information Technology programs.

I’m Jen Ayotte, assistant vice president of undergraduate education.

Students in our IT programs learn to design and support critical hardware and software systems.

In our Associate's degree program, students develop the skills they need to deploy, configure and troubleshoot IT infrastructure for businesses and other organizations.

In our Bachelor's degree program, we emphasize the development of leadership-level skills like project management, systems analysis and translating business needs to IT requirements.

The students best suited for our Information Technology programs are persistent and resourceful. They are excellent listeners and communicators who love solving problems.

To provide an effective online program in a hands-on field, we offer project-based courses that reflect real-world IT scenarios.

Students work in virtual labs with industry tools that enable learning from anywhere. These are the same tools used by professionals, and the skills you learn from this practical approach will help you in your IT career.

You'll study online, but you won't be alone. Our instructors have worked in the field and regularly host live classroom sessions that let you ask questions and learn from their expertise.

Employers of all kinds need IT experts, so your career path could lead anywhere from a small business to a huge global organization with enterprise-level IT infrastructure.

No matter where you go after graduation, a Rasmussen University IT program can help equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to thrive.
