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.
When I first came to Dominican University and heard about the IT program here, I was overjoyed especially after learning that the professors and staff in will do everything in their will power to help students succeed.

Our world is only going to become more reliant on digital technologies, so demand for IT graduates is going to continue to grow. And more sectors are delving into IT innovation every day, so, by the time you graduate, there will likely be even more amazing IT job opportunities for you to choose from.
Throughout your IT degree, you’ll learn core ‘hard skills’ like hardware, software, programming, network management and design, and database management. And you’ll get the opportunity to take liberal arts courses that relate to the industry you’d like to specialize in, so you can better understand the businesses you wish to work within. We’ll also help you develop the in-demand ‘soft skills’ that will set you apart from other IT graduates, helping you secure your dream jobs.
You’ll also learn more advanced IT skills when you choose your concentration. We offer concentrations in application development (e.g. for budding app developers) and IT infrastructure (e.g. to equip you to manage IT infrastructure for large corporations).
Above all, you’ll learn how to use information technology to make the world a better place.
