Bachelor's Degree Completion Program in Information Technology
Living at the height of the Information Age, all professional fields rely on technology in critical ways. It is precisely for this reason that a truly interdisciplinary education—one that combines technology trends, scientific principles and business practices all together—is so valuable.
Developed by GW’s College of Professional Studies, this unique bachelor’s degree completion program is primarily designed for individuals who currently hold an associate’s degree or have earned at least 60 credit hours towards their undergraduate degree at a regionally accredited institution of higher education, with a minimum GPA of 2.7.
Applicants with a prior bachelor’s degree in a non-technical field can receive a second bachelor’s degree by completing the required 60 credit hours of course work in this program. Students must apply and be accepted into the information technology program at CPS for the University to award the degree.
