We live in a digital world. So, choosing to study information technology is one of the safest education decisions you can make. An IT degree will equip you to become a critical organizational resource in any industry, and the Dominican University IT program will also enable you to develop a marketable industry specialization if you desire.

Throughout your studies, you’ll develop core information technology skills, build in-demand soft skills, and prepare for prominent industry IT certifications. You’ll get plenty of opportunities for hands-on learning by working with the Dominican University IT department, including our Chief Information Officer who’s one of our IT professors, and through at least one internship at a local or national business.

Our motto is Doing Business Right, which means we not only teach you how to drive business success through information technology, we also teach you how to improve the world through IT. Such skills are increasingly important in a world where consumers demand ethical and sustainable business practices. You can choose a concentration in Infrastructure or Application Development.

While we teach most of our classes in-person during the day, we also offer evening classes and online information technology courses. So, if you’ve got other responsibilities, you’ll easily be able to fit your studies into your busy schedule.

Of course, going to a university isn’t just about academics, so we’ve made sure you’ll get the support you need to succeed with your studies while also having heaps of fun along the way. If you choose Dominican University, you’ll have the opportunity to join any of a wide range of clubs, really flex your athletic muscles, and take advantage of everything the nearby New York has to offer.

With an IT degree, you could become anything from a computer service technician to a chief information officer. And at Dominican University, you’ll have a great university experience while you earn your BS-Information Technology, an IT minor, or an IT certificate.
