Associate of Applied Science - AAS
The Associate of Applied Science in Professional Studies with a concentration in Information Technology provides students with a foundation in various programming languages (C++, C#, Java, Visual Basic), LAN/WAN networking, data structures, and web page development and design.
The degree program and the courses that comprise it are offered through a cooperative development and delivery model among TBR institutions. In the cooperative model arrangement, TBR institutions share valuable intellectual resources to enrich program offerings.
As an online student, you gain access to highly-qualified faculty from both the campus where you are studying to earn your degree as well as other institutions across the TBR system. You gain exposure to a wide range of opinions, philosophies, perspectives and experiences that you might not otherwise obtain. The students in your classes are also from other institutions across the TBR system which further contributes to a unique online learning experience.
This two-year degree program is designed to help students acquire the skills necessary for entry-level IT employment opportunities upon graduation from community college. If you are considering transfer to a 4-year institution, the Tennessee Transfer Pathway in Information Systems might be a more appropriate option.
