The field of informatics dynamically infuses information science and technology into the lives of people at work and play. It involved studying how people interact with computers, data and other technologies to increase productivity and enhance communication. Informatics addresses how people in various disciplines can employ computer technology with a wide range of tasks from automating mundane processes to helping people see the bigger picture at the strategic level. Students will study topics in information technology and information systems, completing their degree with an interdisciplinary emphasis such as health sciences, criminal justice, accounting, social sciences and others.Short-term certificates are sequences of technical and professional courses that are industry focused and designed for workforce preparation. They provide access to targeted, short-term training in a discipline, and completers may sit for specific certification exams. Courses in certificate programs also apply toward technical certificates and associate degree programs in the subject area.This program is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Note: Completion of certain electives potentially enable students to earn certification in CompTIA A+ and Salesforce Admin. Cost of books may vary.
