Bachelor of Arts in Communication

Undergraduate Program in Communication by the University of Arizona at UTC Global Tunisia

Description

Learn to use computation as a universal tool to communicate, express ideas and solve problems in various fields, from system administration and software development to information management and digital design.

Informatics is the study and practice of creating, storing, finding, manipulating and sharing information. While Informatics does concentrate on high-level computer science topics, it moves beyond the focus on computers alone to examine computing in context.

As a student working toward a Bachelor of Applied Science with an emphasis in Informatics, you’ll develop a strong base of theoretical and practical interdisciplinary experiences. You’ll also learn core Informatics concepts, first in a discipline-independent form, then in the context of specific focus areas, including system administration, software development, information management and digital design.
