The Bachelor of Science in Information Sciences and Technology (IST) degree was established to build leaders for our digital and global economy.
Local and national industry leaders have expressed their need for a new kind of information technology professional, i.e. one who offers not only technical expertise, but also proficiency in finding, analyzing, and managing information in any global setting.
The Penn State IST program is dynamic and highly interdisciplinary. As business and technology landscapes change, additions and improvements to IST courses are made and special-topics courses are created to enable students to receive real-time information about the IT world.
In advance of earning a degree, students gain training in state-of-the-art technology and have the opportunity to apply these skills in real-life situations for profit and not-for-profit organizations in Beaver County and throughout western Pennsylvania.
The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree is an upper-division, professionally-oriented degree program designed for individuals who are seeking general preparation in business.
The degree combines the theoretical underpinnings of core business disciplines, most notably management, marketing, finance, and logistics, and it offers applied study in a practical setting. Course work focuses on the competencies that produce graduates who think and write clearly, analyze and evaluate business data accurately, and collaborate with others effectively.
The Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science in Psychology degrees each require 124 credits to graduate. The psychology major combines the knowledge, skills, and values of psychology with a liberal arts foundation. Individuals will develop a knowledge base consisting of concepts, theory, empirical findings, and trends in psychology.
Participants will understand and apply basic research methods in psychology; use critical thinking and the scientific approach to solve problems related to behavior and mental processes; apply psychological principles to personal and social issues; and understand gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, culture, and class issues in psychological theory, research, and practice.
