AA/AS Degree – Concentration in Computer Science

This curriculum is designed for students interested in transferring to a four-year institution in degree programs such as computer science. This program is part of the Education and Training Career Cluster.

The listed sequence of courses provides guidance for students so that they can complete this program of study in the most efficient manner. This sequence assumes that students have met college academic placement and/or other program requirements. Students are strongly urged to contact a college advisor for assistance in developing their plan for enrolling in courses to meet the program of study. Computer Science majors should consult with their academic advisor to determine if transfer after one year of coursework is a better option than earning an Associate’s degree prior to transfer.
