Student Testimonial

Villanova's Part-Time Studies program in Information Systems strikes an excellent balance between the demands of a traditional 4-year degree program and the time constraints of working adults. The program is flexible, offering a wide range of practical courses both on-line and in the classroom, while still providing the academic rigor required of an accredited nationally respected University.
