: 107

This degree is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year degree program in computer science or for students in mathematics, science, or technical areas who wish to acquire skills in computer software development for scientific and technical applications. The courses in the program provide an academic core of the theoretical concepts of computer science combined with the fundamentals of structured design and development techniques for computer programming.

Because of the academic level of this area of concentration, students are expected to demonstrate college-level skills in English, mathematics, and elementary programming.

Not all CMSC courses transfer to all institutions. Please consult an advisor or the transfer institution before selecting elective courses. This program can be completed either on campus or online.
