Postbaccalaureate Certificate in Applied Informatics

The use of technology and analytical methods has become increasingly important in our global society. Such massive use of technology has in turn created a growing demand for technically adept employees.

The Postbaccalaureate Certificate in Applied Informatics provides the necessary technical expertise to college graduates who are seeking a broad understanding of information technology, its social and psychological dimensions, and its application to the students’ chosen disciplines (STEM, Psychology, Philosophy, Business, Health Sciences, Education, Engineering, etc.)

Courses provide an understanding of information technology and how it helps solve problems in the student’s areas of interest. Students take three lower-level courses in informatics, one upper-level course in informatics, and one upper-level course from the list of electives. Upper-level courses must be chosen with the approval of the director of informatics and a faculty member from the student’s area of interest.

Students should contact the department office ( or (574) 520-5521) before their first semester to schedule a meeting with an Informatics advisor to develop a plan for their academic course of study.

The student must complete the requirements for the certificate at IU South Bend with a grade of C– or better. This certificate is for those who already have a 4-year non-IT bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university.
