Degrees at AIU Houston
The process of earning a degree doesn't work the same way for every student, which is why American InterContinental University (AIU) has both campus-based and online learning options. For those who prefer the face-time and collaborative learning of a classroom environment, our Houston campus offers updated facilities and local faculty. If you're a full-time working professional making progress toward your degree during nights and weekends, the flexibility and convenient nature of online classes may be a better fit.
Best of all, you don't have to choose between a strictly online or on-campus learning experience. At AIU Houston, many of our programs allow you to combine classroom-based and online courses, giving you the flexibility to complete your degree requirements in whatever way works best for you.
Houston-Based IT Degrees
Modern businesses rely on the internet and complex Information Technology (IT) networks to serve customers and store important data. At AIU Houston, we offer both campus-based and online options for earning an IT degree, as well as several specializations to help narrow your focus of study.
Our Houston campus offers the following IT specializations:
- Digital Investigations – Our Digital Investigations specialization is designed to teach students how to track criminal activity through complex digital records and computer forensics, collect and preserve evidence of cybercrimes, and report findings to law enforcement agencies in compliance with legal requirements.
- Information Assurance and Security – A BSIT in Information Assurance and Security can help students prepare to prevent and respond to cyber security crimes before they happen. Courses focus on how to identify weaknesses in a company's network that could leave them vulnerable to hacking and cyber attacks, as well as how to create security protocols, maintain security systems and ensuring the integrity and confidentiality of sensitive data.
- Networking Administration – Students who opt for a Network Administration specialization can learn how to set up, maintain and update a company's IT computer and database systems, as well as how to respond to issues like software and hardware changes and traffic-induced stress on the network.
- Software Analysis and Development – Those who want to design computer programs and applications will find courses on writing, testing, debugging and analyzing software and platforms in this specialization.
If you have your bachelor's degree and you're looking to take the next steps in your IT knowledge, we also offer a fully online Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) program with specializations in Information Assurance and Security or IT Project Management.
