Computer Science (AS, CA)

Computer Science is the study and design of computer systems: both hardware and software. Computer scientists are primarily concerned with the design of algorithms, languages, hardware architectures, systems software, applications soft­ware and tools. Emphasis in the Computer Science program is placed on the abil­ity to solve problems and think independently. The program offers a foundation in data structures, computer architecture, software design, algorithms, programming languages, and object-oriented programming. See a Counselor for additional uni­versity transfer requirements in this major.
