Bachelor of Arts in Information Technology
Information Technology (IT) is defined by the Information Technology Association of America (ITAA), as the study, design, development, implementation, support or management of computer-based information systems, particularly software applications and computer hardware. IT deals with the use of electronic computers and computer software to convert, store, protect, manage, transmit and retrieve data, securely.
This program provides the necessary skills and knowledge to work/design/participate within organizations that manage large amounts of data and provide services to a large number of users. Students will develop skills and knowledge in Information Technologies, management practices and organizations, with the required fundamentals of Computer Science.
This unique program offers the students a solid training in all the areas related to Information Technology. This includes: Computer Science, Management, E-commerce, Human Resources and Marketing.
- Develop the students knowledge in Information Technologies, Management practices and Organizations, with the required fundamentals of Computer Science
- Provide the students with the necessary skills to study, design, develop, implement and manage computer-based information systems, particularly software applications and computer hardware.
- Students registered in this programme have access to Co-op placements.
- Our students have opportunities to work part-time with the ITS department during their studies.
- A growing number of francophone students come to study Computer Science at Bishop's. Computer Science is a language that everyone understands and speaks! We all speak Java and C++ and do the same Math. Many of our faculty are bilingual, and by the end of their degree, all francophone students are bilingual as well!
