Computer Programming

Associate in Applied Science

Computer Programming

Many students are not interested in transferability, but rather mobility into the job market, with the career goal of a programmer. This degree strongly emphasizes programming and includes Java, C++ and Visual Basic. These are languages routinely used by computer programmers. Students will be well prepared for entry-level positions in programming or computer operations.
