Computer Science

This coursework is the begining towards a bachelor's degree in Computer Science. While Computer Science has applications in various and diverse fields, the foundation still lies with the theoretical and practical skills of computer science professionals. We will prepare you for your bachelor's degree with general education courses and introductory computer science courses designed to support your transfer to a university baccalaureate program. The techniques and principles taught are easily transferred to different languages present in the industry today. While exact syntax may be different, the general concepts are universal.
