Computer Science

The program is designed to match the first two years of a Bachelor of Art (B.A.) in computer science degree at a baccalaureate institution by providing a seamless transition to upper-division computer science coursework. The curriculum emphasizes the theoretical foundations of computing, data structures and algorithms, object-oriented software design and programming, computer architecture and the study of high-level language paradigms. Students practice analysis, design, implementation, and testing of software solutions. Students graduating from the program will be awarded an associate in arts degree.   Apply & Register Program Details

Program Goals

  • To provide students with a foundation in a general education.
  • To prepare students for transfer to a baccalaureate of arts degree in Computer Science.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

At the end of the program, the graduate will be able to:

  1. Analyze, design, develop and test computer based applications using problem solving and analytical skills developed throughout the program.
  2. As part of a team, develop software applications that meet program requirements including the production of design and formal test plan documentation.
  3. Demonstrate social awareness and analyze the global impact of computing on individuals, organizations and society.

Post-Baccalaureate Employment Opportunities
