Computer Science, A.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

Computer science is the study of the limits and use of computers. Applications of computer science pervade most fields: medicine (x-ray analysis), engineering, communications (programming cell phones to successfully communicate with each other), entertainment (digital movies and video games), and home computing (word processing and the internet). The delivery of this specialization couples the art and science of programming with the study of math, physics and the building blocks of computing machines to provide a balanced overview of the field.

This program focuses on framing and solving problems, learning skills sets necessary to solve these problems, and developing thought processes needed for further understanding in computer science. Emphasis is on the enduring concepts rather than current syntax. The computer science specialization is intended for transfer to a four-year institution or as a background for computer related courses.
