If you wish to earn an associate degree at the regional campuses and ultimately obtain a bachelor's degree in one of three computing programs that can be completed at the Oxford campus, this major is for you. You can complete an A.A.S. by taking approximately half of the courses for a bachelor's degree in one of the following majors: Computer Science, Software Engineering, or Computer Engineering. After earning the A.A.S. you may relocate to the Oxford campus and continue with junior standing.
Associate or Bachelor: Which Works for Me?
There are two options for Associate degree majors. One leads to a job, while the other can lead to a job or a bachelor's degree on the Oxford campus.
Computer and Information Technology focuses on the development and support of computing systems. The Computer and Information Technology (Career Option) major allows the choice of one of two concentrations that are essential to computing: Networking and Software Development.
In a field as broad as Information Technology, it pays to give yourself an edge, a distinct and impressive difference that lifts you above the rest. Miami's Bachelor of Science in Information Technology does just that, it is offered only at the regional locations in Hamilton, Middletown, and West Chester. The bachelor of Science in Information Technology features three great majors.
The program in Health Information Technology (HIT) addresses the technology and processes used by health care providers and related organizations.
You will be prepared for jobs that integrate healthcare and technology in the evolving and fast-growing U.S. healthcare system, gaining applied technological skills to solve problems and manage information.
This program allows you to create and build a unique IT pathway based on your ultimate career goals and/or plans for graduate studies.
Years 1 and 2 introduce the fundamentals of IT. In years 3 and 4 you will develop your specialization through a set of courses and electives, a faculty-guided research or individual project, and a year-long capstone.
