Major Description

This program is designed for students who plan to continue a Baccalaureate degree at South Texas College or to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a Baccalaureate degree in Computer Software Engineering and/or Computer Science. It is also designed to prepare students for entry level positions in the field of computer science. The curriculum of the computer science degree program focuses on computer programming and general education cores of studies.

Students who wish to declare this transfer major should ask for program planning assistance from a Computer Science program advisor. Transfer institutions vary in lower division (first two years of college) major department requirements. Meeting the Associate of Science degree requirements does not automatically guarantee that all four-year colleges will accept each and every course toward their degree plan. It is imperative that students work closely with departmental faculty and the four-year college faculty in determining transferability of courses.

Work Environment

The Computer Science Department prepares students for transfer to a four-year institution where they can specialize in such disciplines.
