La Roche University's Information Technology Program puts the latest technology at your fingers tips, allowing you to master computer and programming skills.
This major explores how information is used in organizations, and how IT enables improvement in quality, timeliness and competitive advantage. The program focuses on the six critical components of information systems:
- Policies and procedures
- People and communication
You’ll complete coursework in information systems and technology, problem solving, database, networking, java programming, and systems analysis and design.
In addition, you’ll complete 15 to 24 credits for a required minor, and 34 credits of the liberal arts core. This unique combination provides you with the advanced skills that today’s employers seek: writing, analyzing, collaborating and critical thinking.
We require all IT majors to declare a minor as part of their degree requirements. This component allows you to develop a secondary or complementary area of expertise, which makes you a well-rounded and competitive job candidate. Some of the most popular minors to combine with an IT degree include:
- Computer Science & Forensics
- Web Design & Development
You’ll work with state-of-the-art computers, operating systems, databases, electronics, networks and human-computer interfaces. Our IT students may work as work-study students assisting in the computer labs, Help Desk or IT Department. They also may serve as peer tutors for IT or computer science classes.
As part of your coursework, you’ll also participate in website development for local nonprofit organizations, as well as training, presenting and creating documentation for outside clients.

Upon graduation you’ll be prepared for employment in a wide range of technical computer-based occupations including:
- Systems Analyst
