Health Information Technology Degree

At Champlain College we design our online programs for working adults, and there's nowhere this is more evident than in our curricula. The health information technology bachelor's program is comprised of both professional and general education courses that provide foundational knowledge and immediate take-aways that can be applied on the job.

Whether it's PHIL 340, Ethics in the Professions, that will help you to formulate arguments, practice deliberation and assess the implications of decisions across your organization; ENGL 315, Writing in the Workplace, where you will learn not simply how to craft a better essay, but also how to be more effective in your written communication on the job; or CMIT 200, Relational Database Design & SQL, where you will understand the relational database model using SQL server and Oracle-based systems, you will take courses that are focused, relevant, and delivered in an accelerated 7-week format.
