Real World Learning

Pitt-Johnstown Business Information Systems

Real World learning at Pitt-Johnstown is a unique blend of academics and experiential learning, leading to rewarding career opportunities.

Information Systems

Our distinctive people, place, and programs create a learning environment that gives students an opportunity to develop knowledge, skills, and values from direct experiences in and outside the classroom. Real World opportunities, including internships, service-learning, undergraduate research, study abroad, and other creative and professional work experiences, result in exceptional performance. 

The Real World Action Program is a University-wide initiative designed to guide students through a series of programs, activities and experiences that complement their academic studies. 


Students completed the Information Systems concentration can expect to be prepared for a broad range of career opportunities included (but not limited to): working as a systems analyst or programmer analyst, database administration, network administration, web development, help desk support, software development, and information security.
