Dr. Keith Mulbery, Department Chair

We offer high-quality undergraduate programs that give you the education and support you need to achieve your professional goals. You will take classes that provide a solid technical background, but also courses that teach you domain-specific processes from your chosen area of study.

Many of our degrees are stackable, meaning you can earn an Associate of Applied Science degree on your way to earning a Bachelor of Science degree without taking any extra classes. Most recently, we have added a graduate certificate in Cybersecurity to our program offerings.


In particular, we offer the following programs:

  • Certificate of Completion in Administrative Support
  • Certificate of Completion in Network Administration
  • Certificate of Proficiency in Information Technology
  • AAS in Administrative Information Management
  • AAS in Information Systems and Technology
  • AS in Administrative Information Management
  • AS Pre-Major in Information Systems and Technology
  • Bachelor of Science in Business/Marketing Education
  • Bachelor of Science in Information Management
  • Bachelor of Science in Information System
  • Bachelor of Science in Information Technology
  • Graduate Certificate in Cybersecurity

Individuals who earn a degree from the IS&T Department are highly employable in a wide range of careers, such as Business Intelligence, IT management, and network security. Our graduates work for large and small companies in Utah and across the country. In addition, we offer a Minor in Information Systems and Technology for students who major in other disciplines but want to increase their career opportunities. Computer technology is used in most careers, and a minor in IST provides graduates with additional computer and technology skills.

The B.S. in Information Systems degree offers four unique emphases to prepare students for a specific niche in rapidly growing IS fields: (1) Business Intelligence Systems, (2) Geographic Information Systems, (3) Healthcare Information Systems, and (4) Information Security Management. The B.S. in Information Systems program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

The B.S. in Information Technology degree offers two emphases to prepare students for dynamic careers in IT: (1) Computer Forensics and Security and (2) Network Administration and Security.  Recently, we received notice that the B.S. in Information Technology program is now accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

The IS&T Department also offers programs in Administrative Information Support, Administrative Information Management, and Business/Marketing Education. Starting this Fall 2015, we added the new B.S. in Information Management.

We are starting a new cohort of the Graduate Certificate in Cyber Security at Xactware Fall 2015. Contact Robert Jorgensen at 801.863.5282 or at robert.jorgensen@uvu.edu for more information and to lean how to apply for admission into this program.

Thank you for your interest in the fields of Information Systems and Technology. It is an exciting time to be a part of the changes and innovative technology in our field. I encourage you to explore our Web site and learn more about the opportunities we have to offer you.

I look forward to welcoming you into the Department of IS&T.
