Computer Science, A.S.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degree/Certificate Programs


The computer science curricula are designed to give the student a broad applications language background. This can be used to prepare students pursuing four-year degrees with the necessary course work required for the first two years. Alternatively, the student can fulfill the core requirements of a two-year applied science degree in computer science, with emphasis in a specific area of interest.

The Associate of Science in Computer Science is designed to accommodate students interested in the first two years of a four-year degree program in computer science or management information systems (MIS). Students should consult the four-year college curriculum of the college or university to which they plan to transfer to see which electives best fit their needs.
