IT

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

In information technology programs, students may be able to explore different types of technology applications and the way in which information is created, exchanged and stored. Students may learn how to write code and can explore areas such as information security, software applications, system design and databases.
