Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) June 18, 2010
Drexel University Online has introduced a new Bachelor’s to Master’s in Information Technology degree completion program. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics survey for March 2010, for those 25 years old and over, the number of people employed with a bachelor’s degree exceeded those with an associate’s degree. Drexel’s new degree program seeks to provide students who have an associate’s degree the credentials needed to qualify for information technology positions requiring a bachelor’s degree.
Drexel’s program differs from traditional degree completion programs in that it allows students to work towards a master’s degree while completing a bachelor’s degree. Students earn a Bachelor’s in Information Technology and can then choose from a Master’s degree in Information Systems, Library and Information Science or Software Engineering. The program’s goal is to help professionals qualify for additional jobs, while preparing them for management positions.
Similar to Drexel’s other online degree offerings, the fully-accredited Bachelor’s to Master’s in Information Technology degree completion program is offered entirely online. The program was designed for professionals unable to commute to campus because of work, family or geographical constraints. Drexel Online students earn the same prestigious degree as on campus. Students can learn anytime and anywhere with 24/7 online access to class materials, group discussion, instructor feedback, and exams.
“We’re very proud to offer our students the outstanding Drexel curriculum within this convenient online format,” said Dr. Kenneth Hartman, academic director at Drexel University Online. “All of our online programs – including the BS to MS in Information Technology degree completion program – are taught by the same renowned faculty as our campus courses.”
Applications for Drexel’s online Bachelor’s to Master’s in Information Technology degree completion program are now being accepted for the fall term. For more information about this online program, visit Drexel.com
