Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Integrated Application Development

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Integrated Application Development is available to students who have already earned a bachelor's degree. The certificate program is designed to give the student the knowledge and skills needed move into a career in technology through a challenging academic program of study in Information Systems and Information Technology. The program emphasizes knowledge and skills needed to develop effective application solutions that integrate both front-end processing and back-end database processing.

Note: SoPA also offers Post-Baccalaureate Certificates in Business Systems Analysis, Information Technology and Cybersecurity. Each requires the 6 core courses from the Applied Computing undergraduate program plus six additional concentration courses. Students seeking to earn multiple certificates (or who have earned a B.S. in Applied Computing and seek to earn a certificate in another concentration area) may not use a single course to satisfy the requirements of more than one degree or concentration.
