Computer Science - A.A. Degree (Transfer)

Application Code 33

For curriculum information, contact the Business and Computer Systems Division—Room DH 239—443-518-1520.

The growing emphasis on technology has increased the demand for programmers in a diverse range of application and systems development environments. This curriculum prepares students for programming in environments such as engineering, scientific employment, government, and education. The computer science program emphasizes algorithm/modular design, structured programming techniques, program debugging and structured walkthrough skills, and group interaction. This curriculum has been designed to fit with similar programs at Towson University and the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC).

General Education Core

Students enrolled in transfer patterns must take a minimum of 30 credits in General Education. Each student’s total of general education and required courses must equal at least 60 semester hours of credit.
