I am currently enrolled to study for my B.A. in Project Management through Ashford University, but when looking at what the civilian side ask for, I always see companies asking for tech related degrees.

Two separate paths. IT Project Management is not very technical. Some programs have a CIS or CS with a PM specialty. However, if you want marketability, focus on a computer science degree and get a couple of pm classes as your electives.

Graduating with a degree in IT Project Management does not mean you are a certified PMP; that is a separate exam. The classes in project management are a great place to gain the necessary and required training, but there is a required number of hours experience that is also required to sit for the exam. It is a rigorous process but well worth it.

The degree in Project Management is just a general project manager degree. Non IT related. However with my Associates being in IT, it basically Information Technology basically becomes my minor I presume. I could be completely wrong though.
