Program Description

The Associate and Bachelor of Science degrees in Information Technology (IT) provide students with broad and versatile skills to solve a wide range of problems in the field. The core of the curriculum introduces students to the fundamentals of IT with a focus on computer hardware, operating systems, system administration, networking, and information security. Students will learn how to handle current and future IT business needs. Upper level courses prepare students to design, implement, and administer a complete IT infrastructure. Both IT programs prepare students for industry standard certifications, such as those from Cisco, Microsoft, and CompTIA.

The Information Technology Department ensures that all graduates have current competencies in the IT field. Students in Salish Kootenai College’s Associate and Bachelor of Information Technology Degrees who take longer than four years to fulfill the curricular requirements stated in the catalog in effect when the student entered will be required to select a subsequent catalog and possibly repeat core Information Technology degree courses. This policy applies to all students, including undergraduates who change curriculum and transfer students.

Students transferring to SKC with an A.S. in Information Technology Degree may be required to take additional A.S. courses to be properly prepared for B.S. level courses. Advisors will work with students in order to develop the best pathway to graduation.
