Program Description

Students seeking degrees in computer information technology may follow a plan that adds academic courses to the two levels of certificates. Students who have degrees or who have articulated courses from high school may receive additional training in areas such as Visual Basic.NET, C, RPG programming, and Network Security.

Students will find coursework, taught by certified instructors, in our certificate and degree programs that lead to professional certification from vendors such as Microsoft, Cisco and Oracle.

The general education core courses, COSC classes, and some technical courses transfer to a variety of universities. Technical AAS degrees transfer in total to some universities. Contact a counselor or advisor at any college for specific information and to obtain the recommended sequencing of courses.

Students interested in transferring to a bachelor's program in computer science should consider completing the A.A. degree with a field of study in computer science. See the academic transfer section of this catalog for details.
