UVA Opens New Gateway to IT Careers.

The University of Virginia is launching a certificate program to help prepare liberal arts graduates for careers in information technology fields.

Beginning this fall, the university's Northern Virginia Center in Falls Church, Va., will offer a seven-course, 19-credit, Information Technology Certificate program to provide training for college graduates, professionals and people seeking a career shift into IT fields.

Courses will cover Internet technologies, systems analysis, project management, World Wide Web design, computer programming, technology operations, financial management, quality assurance and more.

The program will take nine months to complete and is designed to produce individuals ready for entry-level and mid-management positions in areas such as systems analysis, information architecture, Web design, technical sales and marketing, and technical writing.

An orientation will be held Aug. 18. More information is available at uvace.virginia.edu/northern.
