Computer Science for Transfer (2013-2014)
Computer science courses provide a combination of theoretical study and practical application. Core areas include hardware, software, algorithms, operating systems, languages and data structures. Specialized topics include mobile apps, graphics programming, open source, networking and quantum computation.
The Associate in Science in Computer Science for Transfer Degree will prepare students to transfer to California State Universities (CSUs). Students who complete the Associate in Science in Computer Science for Transfer Degree will be ensured preferential transfer status to CSUs as Computer Science majors and/or majors in related disciplines. The Associate in Science in Computer Science for Transfer Degree requirements will fulfill the lower division major requirements at many CSUs. Students are advised, however, to meet with a counselor to assess the course requirements for specific local CSUs.
