Hull degree program renamed

Earlier this week, the Board of Regents granted Augusta University’s request to change the name of one of its degree programs.

Effective immediately, the Bachelor of Science in Applied Information Systems and Technologies, a degree program offered by the James M. Hull College of Business, will be renamed a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology.

According to Dr. Mark Thompson, interim dean, the name change more effectively describes the curriculum and content of the program.

“This change will be more easily recognized by prospective students as well as employers hiring our graduates,” he said. “Additionally, students will experience an increase in internships and full-time opportunities as a result of this name change.”

The program, which provides students with a broad foundation of technical skills and understanding, is closely tied with the university’s cyber initiative.
