Computer Science Major Information

If you are interested in transferring to a Baccalaureate institution and majoring in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Computer Information Systems, Computer Software Systems, Software Engineering, or another closely related field, you should speak to a Computer Science Adviser.

Which degree track you should follow (Associate in Science or a tightly defined Associate in Arts ), and which courses you take can vary considerably depending on the university to which you transfer (see our University Transfer Information resource).

At a minimum, your degree plan should include at least the following courses:

MATH &151  and MATH &152  (Calculus)

CS 115 - Introduction to Programming  (Visual Basic) - prerequisite for either the C/C++ sequence or the Java Sequence

CS &131 , CS 132 , and (usually) CS 133  (C/C++ sequence)*

or CS &141 , CS 142 , and (usually) CS 143  (Java sequence)**


*C/C++ sequence typically scheduled fall (CS &131 ), winter (CS 132 ), and spring (CS 133 ).
CS &131  is also scheduled fall and winter.

**Java sequence typically scheduled fall (CS &141 ), winter (CS 142 ) and spring (CS 143 ) and
winter (CS &141 ), spring (CS 142 ) and fall (CS 143 ).
CS &141  is also typically scheduled summer and spring; CS 142  is also typically scheduled fall.

Actual schedule should be chosen in consultation with an adviser.
