EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (Dec. 18, 2019) – North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University has the nation’s best Master of Science in Information Technology program offered by a historically black college or university, according to Intelligent.com.

The program, which ranks only behind the University of South Florida as the country’s best program among 47, is one of three online degree programs highly ranked in reports released for 2020 by the website, which is designed to help students make informed decisions about higher education programs.

Based on an assessment of 1,604 accredited colleges and universities, Intelligent.com also ranked North Carolina A&T at No. 7 out of 25 for dental assistant degree programs and No. 34 out of 57 for baccalaureate information technology degree programs.

N.C. A&T’s Master of Science in Information Technology program emphasizes the acquisition of sound theoretical concepts with intensive experience. It is offered with concentrations in computer networking and communications, computer security, web technologies, digital media technologies, and database management. Courses are taught by faculty with high level expertise gained through their research activity, affiliations with industry and professional experience.
