What You'll Learn

Essential Knowledge and Skills

We developed our online software development program with significant input from experts and business leaders who serve on our Information Technology Program Council. You’ll become an expert in all areas of study required to earn your Bachelor of Science in Software Development.

The program requires a total of 122 competency units (CUs), our equivalent to the traditional credit hour. Many students who begin their program have some IT experience, and students who have taken college courses or received a degree from another university may be able to transfer credits, significantly shortening the time to graduation. A personal evaluation of your transcripts from prior colleges will be needed to determine whether you will be able to clear any degree requirements.
