Deciding what to study can be a difficult choice to make. The modern employment landscape is vast and complex, as there are many existing options as well as an abundance of possibilities for entrepreneurs. When making this important choice, there are two crucial factors to take into consideration: passion and feasibility.
Those who enjoy their work and have a passion for their profession perform better than those who do not share this enthusiasm. In order to accommodate as many interests as possible, the Pearson Institute has three faculties through which two postgraduate and 15 undergraduate degrees are offered.
The second important concern when selecting a field of study is feasibility. The Pearson Institute is guided by student and employer needs, ensuring highly employable graduates. The 17 degrees offered by Pearson have been specifically selected according to employer demands and society’s requirements.
Computer science and information technology is one of the most popular fields of study the world over. Our world is in an information age, and the demand for appropriately qualified graduates increases yearly. Meeting this demand, Pearson offers BSc degrees in computer science, informatics and internet communication, as well as a BSc Honours (Information Technology).
Another vital field in the modern world is design. This field attracts creative and imaginative individuals who have a passion for visual communication and for combining aesthetics and functionality. Pearson have responded to the ever growing call for designers by offering a BA in Graphic Design. Our staff are all experienced in the industry and our facilities are state of the art which, together with our strong emphasis on real-world application, have launched many successful careers.
Lastly, law is one of the oldest academic fields and has always been in demand, much as business and commerce. Pearson has combined these two respectable fields of study, and offer a Bachelor of Commerce in Law degree, alongside four other BComm degrees. This field is a broad and dynamic one, a fact reflected in the intensive curriculum designed by Pearson which highlights application. Our graduates are thus very well prepared for the professional environment.
Further information regarding these popular degrees, as well as the other degrees on offer at Pearson Institute is available on their individual faculty pages.
