Computer Science Degrees/Certificates

Computer Science courses are designed to meet the varying goals of students interested in employment or education in the computer field. There are courses on specific languages for professionals who want to supplement their skills with the knowledge of a current programming language (PC assembler, C++, Visual BASIC, Java). A certificate in computer science can be earned by those students desiring to enter the workplace at entry-level positions. Also, an Associate Degree can be earned by those students desiring to transfer to a four-year institution with a major in Computer Science. The Computer Science courses provide instruction in low level and high level languages, intermediate and advanced techniques in programming, and hardware organization. Refer to Computer Science in the courses section of this catalog and to the schedule of classes for specific information.
