Information Technology Degree and Programs



Information technology is an umbrella term that covers a wide variety of tech professions.

If you want an information technology career that allows you to show your creative side, consider becoming a multimedia designer or a game designer.

For example, technical support workers need at least associate degrees, while most computer scientists need to hold doctorates. Many entry- and mid-level tech professionals hold bachelor's degrees. Most information technology degrees should include coursework in operating systems, security, networking, web design, and databases. Common IT majors include computer science, computer programming, and database management.
