Liberal Arts & Sciences: Computer Science Concentration (code: EB38)
Associate in Arts Degree
The goal of this program is to prepare computer science majors to transfer to a baccalaureate degree program. Students have the opportunity to explore their interests and meet their first- and second-year requirements in computer science, mathematics, science, humanities, and social science courses. Students are advised to review the requirements of the transfer institution prior to course selection.
- Demonstrate the ability to read and write program code in a variety of programming languages and have extensive experience with at least one high-level, widely-used and modern programming language
